Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Zapped - Section 2: Activity


I chose this article to complement the novel, Tangerine by Edward Bloor, we are reading in class.  As we progress through the novel, students will be doing research related to topics relevant to the novel.  I try to provide non-fiction passages to support discussion with the class novel.  In the end, I recognize that students will need research resources, so this one that I provide and students will possibly use in their final assessment.

This activity can be adapted to any concept being studied.  It is also great with cross-curricular studies.
