Reflection: Trust and Respect Miniconference on Environmental Issues - Section 1: Introduction


In this lesson, students separate from the group that helped them record information and make sense of the reading to a group were they are the only ones representing a specific point-of-view. I mentioned the work that happens before this lesson because it is an important precursor to having one child be the only presenting in a group. It is similar to the jigsaw reading that some use, but for these readings and topics its important for students to have a like-minded group to help them figure it all out and make sense of it. Then they get to share with that same group to the class. Even though students will have a chance to share in their small groups, it helps the presents feel supported and it give the listeners a chance to hear the information more than once, once in the class presentation and once again when they are in their 2nd group.
