Reflection: Modeling Cosmically Cool Planet Research! Day Eight: Final Drafts - Section 3: Lesson: Writing a Final Copy

 

I do a lot of "thinking out loud" to explain the process of something, as well as the "why" behind it to my students.  In this lesson, I'm modeling on my document camera, how to draft the final copy of our planet research report.  Throughout the day I do a lot of modeling, usually giving the students time immediately to try the skill themselves.
