Reflection: Intervention and Extension Propaganda in the Hunger Games - Section 1: Learning about Propaganda through Reading and a Reference Sheet


I'm running out of time.  This is the time of year when I consider the merits of a mile wide and inch deep versus an inch wide and a mile deep.  I adhere to the inch wide mile deep side, but sometimes I think I take it too deep.  I'm sort of expecting to find myself digging out on the other side of the world once school ends.

This is also the time of year when I think about what I'd like to do next year.

What I like about these is that it gives students multiple opportunities to learn about the concepts, from different authors.  It gives them multiple times to master the concepts, while also reading nonfiction.  Use nonfiction to teach the concepts.  Two birds, one stone. 

The only problem is that it takes so much more time. 

Here's a collection of articles and resources that I compiled using Blendspace, an app on Edmodo. It's free, and although I haven't used it too much, it seems like a spiffy way to compile resources for both myself and my students.
