Revising Our Argument for Presentation Part 2

Print Lesson


SWBAT work as a team to revise the chosen argument and prepare for presentation.

Big Idea

Getting to the finish line is all about cooperation.

Warm Up

15 minutes

Today is Free Read Friday.  (The link here takes will take you to an earlier lesson with my reflection explaining Free Read Friday.) Students will read their personal library books for the first 15 minutes of class.

Lesson/Group Work

20 minutes

Today, groups will listen to the screencast conferences I completed last night over the piece they have chosen for their presentation.

Using their collective knowledge and guidance from the screencast, they will work together to revise the text and complete any plans for multi-media, props, etc.  I leave the creativity up to them.

I will circulate to assist and offer advice as needed.  I love days like this…they are "in charge" of their learning.


15 minutes

Groups will have 15 minutes to "practice".  I will comment, assist and answer questions as needed.

Wrap Up

5 minutes

To wrap up class today, I'll open the floor for final questions for tomorrow.  I'm sure there will be several.
