Reflection: Flexibility Informational Format: Creating MLA-Style Information Note Cards - Section 2: Finding and Using Information Creating Info Cards


As with the above section, this also ran long. It took much longer than I expected for students to be able to locate peers, in one class disregarding the "groups of three" directions completely. After taking the time to shuffle students around, we got back on track, and students began skimming and creating their examples, but we did not get any further than that. See the video below for other thoughts on reteaching/drawing students attention to the format of info cards.
