Reflection: Relevance How To Do Quality Research & Citation - Section 1: Warm Up


If you follow me you know that I like to use student work as examples. I have written example pieces before when there is something specific I want to demonstrate and student work doesn't so it. However, when I can I use current student work.

I think this lends to the relevance of what I am teaching my students.  In today's lesson for example, I use previous student work to create the need for the lesson.

Note that I do not always use negative examples.  I am a firm believer in showing model pieces and where better to get them than from my own students.
