Reflection: Positive Reinforcement Argumentation: Breaking it down into its parts (1 of 2) - Section 2: Mini lesson--graphic organizer design


It is important for the standards to lead the way in creating curriculum and lessons for my courses.  However, I must be careful to allow time for life lessons.  Creating an organizational system is a high quality task.  Asking students to think critically about information and decide on the best way to present that information so that it makes better meaning, is a skill they will need when they are shopping for a college, new car or new house.  This example, Student graphic organizer example, illustrates an example of what students created on the board.  It shows that students were really thinking about how best to present information.
