Reflection: Writing Across the Disciplines Climb Like A Gecko - Section 5: Evaluate


Since this is our last lesson in this unit I wanted to add some type of additional writing. I remind the class that writing is another form of communication. I use the prompt, "How do animals use their external features to survive?" We really just reflect on the gecko. I say, so what might be a good topic sentence we can restate from the prompt? Then we add that to our graphic organizer: writing extension that I just hand write. Then I ask the class to share some important details from the video. I add what they say. Then I ask the class to come up with a concluding statement. I add that to the board. 

Last, the studnets use the graphic organizer to write their own paragraph: exemplar student work. Now, I do use POW TIDE as my strategy. 

P: pull apart the prmopt

O: organize my notes

W: write

Then in TIDE

T is the topic sentence

ID is an important detail and we have three

E is for the ending.
