Reflection: Intrinsic Motivation Identifying and Writing Opinions About Clouds Using Clue Words - Section 4: Closure


     I know my students were motivated in this lesson.  They were engaged while discussing the story, they loved working forming an opinion and justifying their answers.  I have some work samples here that show the creativity and imagination of my students.  They did a great job with their work.  There was one student of mine that kept writing about how "fun" her picture was.  I redirected her and asked her "Did you justify your thinking and say why you think the way you do?" She looked at me with wide eyes and a sheepish grin  and said, "no." I had her go back and fix her work.  You can see a video of their work samples here in the resource section.
