Reflection: Complex Tasks Creating a Banned Book Infographic - Section 3: Infographic Assignment


The infographic assignment was exceptionally difficult for my students. I had hoped they would create infographics similar to the two I showed at the beginning of the lesson, but they did not. Instead, they used familiar formats and those I introduced. I now know that I will need to create the kind of infographic in the examples before I can expect students to do make these. Simply, I need to model the task. 

Still, kids had some good ideas, but they need to do more with the assignment in most cases. One student's Prezi  Another student's Hunger Games ppt, which has superb information in an old format.
