Ms. Andrea Love Art and Gifted Educator
Our writing prompt today and discussion was about what the enjoyed learning about while at the Capitol. Many students expressed how they didn't know that there was a Governors Mansion and was glad they got to see it and how the voting of the House Bill's was interesting, but a little boring. (LOL)
Today in TAG we enjoyed our exploratory time first then went to work on our research project.
Students will be peer reviewing others writing soon within the Google Docs to help them with their rough drafts. Ms. Love will be giving suggestions as well to help students construct a research paper that answers the "so what" question within their topic. Students will be peer reviewing other students work and giving input on Google Docs. Ms. Love will be giving students strategies for their paragraphs, transitioning from one sentence to another and helping them write an introduction that states the problem and a conclusion that states a summery of the solution to the problem from the introduction. This is a challenging concept for the students and we will get through it. When students complete a good portion of writing, they are able to take a break and work on coding through Tynker.com
Thank you for sharing your students with me,
