Poem A Day:
Today’s objective is: Students will create original pieces of nonfiction in order to teach others what they know to be true.
Today, I showed students my progress on my Ted Talk inspired by Zeitoun. Model, model, model. But also give lots of techniques and strategies for doing things.
I told them that I started putting the project together the other day when I finally got an idea of what I wanted the point of my ted talk to be. But, it came to me when I was driving to work. So, I got out my iphone and recorded a voice note. Here is that voice note. Will I use that? Some of it? All of it? I do not know. But it got me thinking.
So I started writing ideas in this google doc. My ideas were all over the place.
So I started making this coggle. And then my ideas really got flowing.
Students worked in the computer lab today on their projects. Rough drafts are due next class.
Recap/answer any questions.
