Poem A Day:
I chose this song because it inspires the Ted Talk I am working on for this project.
Today’s objective is: Students will share their projects with peers in small groups so they can develop, clarify and strengthen their ideas.
I asked students to have their rough drafts ready today to share in small groups. So, I had to have my Ted talk rough draft ready.
One of the lessons I learned in this unit, and I hope my students will learn, is if you want to do something well, you have to put a lot of time, thought, energy, and effort into that something. And then, you still may not be able to meet your own expectations. But- you may exceed someone else’s.
Students shared their rough drafts in groups of three. They all worked to strengthen their ideas and make sure they were being clear. Final drafts and presentations are due Monday. I secured the school’s theater for presentations, so that is pretty epic and exciting! I will have to take pictures and post them 🙂
Students share out improvements they will make as a result of today’s work.
