Objective:  Students will view their classmates' Flipgrid videos, identify the strengths and weaknesses of their CTW project sites, and reflect on the process.

Standards:  SL.9.1D

1.  Students will have fifteen minutes to listen to the videos their classmates created on Flipgrid.  While listening, they should be preparing to summarize the dominant viewpoint they heard from their classmates.

2.  When fifteen minutes have elapsed, we will head to PollEverywhere, where students will respond to these questions:

  • What was the dominant viewpoint you heard from your classmates?
  • Pull out the rubric you completed in class last week when you viewed your classmates' CTW sites.  What was the strongest aspect of the sites?
  • What was the weakest aspect of the sites?
  • What skill do you feel the CTW project gave you the opportunity to practice that will be useful to you in the future?
  • What should be changed about the CTW project to make it even better?

Looking ahead to next week - We are going to be updating our accounts, completing the spring My Student Path survey, determining whether our first blog posts of the third quarter address problems from the second quarter posts, thinking about how themes developed in Monster, and identifying textual evidence to support those themes.

HOMEWORK:  Finish your first blog post of the third quarter (remember this first one is supposed to be argumentative and include a counterargument.
