Reflection: Flexibility Exploring Natural Gas - Section 3: Explain


I had the each student answer one of the three questions, "Is natural gas affordable? Is natural gas clean? Is natural gas efficient?" Most of my students printed the article from home and brought it in. Then students used one another's references to collect information for the advanced organizer. This became a bit of a problem because everyone wanted the article with the best information. For example, Anthony found a statistic everyone wanted to use but there was only one copy of the article.  I didn't give myself the time to preview each of the articles to determine which had the most effective information because I wanted the students to make that determination. I taught this to another group and made additional copies so everyone could quote the article they wanted to use.
