Week 5 Google Form
Happy Halloween Week!
It seems this has been a week long celebration with all the dress-up days in support of Red Ribbon Week!
I tasked my students this week to locate a scholarly article related to their blog theme and provide the link in their blog. After reading the article, each student should provide a summary along with their own personal thoughts in regard to the article. They will be peer reviewing 3 other students post and leaving constructive feedback. We had a conversation that a great article could spark some controversial thoughts but that they should have open, curious minds and a willingness to hear new ideas. They might learn something new!
