Reflection: Discourse and Questioning Analyze Penguin Behavior with their Offspring - Section 6: Evaluate


I am looking to see my students using evidence specifically from the text and video. I want to see them disagree and use specific evidence to back up their argument. The students really need to be able to communicate their information in writing or illustrating as well. This gives me a really nice assessment piece, but I also use it to help them share their ideas. This video show how I encourage and try to keep the students speaking in complete sentences, and using evidence from the video and text: presentation and evaluation.
