I want your feedback on my students’ work.
Here are two samples of how two of my students attempted to connect their chosen artifacts to The Book Thief. This, I should explain, is a learning task that helps students begin to see how two (seemingly) different topics can be connected together. The next step is for students to debate a resolution that uses evidence from both The Book Thief and Canadian History (their current unit in Social Studies).
- How well do these students build connections?
- What skills should I consider teaching in preparation for debates?
- What feedback would you give each student?
- How would you tweak the learning task to better support students creating and articulating connections?
