Reflection: Flexibility Eye Witness Accounts of the Olympics - Section 1: The Four Olympic Games


When using an article from the internet, you can choose to have them read the article two ways. You can print each student a copy so that they can write and highlight it for their annotation. The second method, would to leave the article in the iPad or computer and have students practice transferring their notes and thoughts to sticky notes or lined paper. This will be a skill they will nee acquire and good practice for them. 

There are times where highlighting is part of the goal and skill that is being taught for the lesson. However, the transferring of notes is also relevant. I find sticky notes to be helpful and more interesting for the students to use.
