Reflection: Lesson Planning Using an Oreo to Craft an Argument Part 2 - Section 2: Lesson


Albert Einstein said, "Insanity [is] doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." So, when my students aren't where I want them to be I need to attack the skill in a slightly (or sometimes dramatically) different way.

When looking at the good and bad of the argument they wrote to me to earn a free reading day, one of the top problems was their use of resources.  This practice narrows the resource information, and walks them through it.  The topic is also a complete 180, so it allows them to see a different side of argument.

Giving them this second try at the same skill will allow them to put into practice what they know "now".
