Reflection: Performance Tasks An Examination of Causes and Effects of Rising Sea Levels Around the World - Section 3: Collaborative Partner Work


Through the performance task of creating written summaries using the online interactive computer program Voki, my students are synthesizing information from multiple texts - the Brainpop video as text, the Scholastic News article as text, the list of 10 things we can do to stop global warming.  This is really a CCSS aligned lesson because it requires students to integrate knowledge from three texts for write and speak knowledgeably about the subject of global warming.
