- Engagement 6/6: Students are working together and talking about the article together, and co-viewing the PPT (co-engagement). The technology is helping bring the students into the learning (not distracting from it).
- Enhancement 2/6: The PPT helps to add features and supports students using higher-level thinking skills in the discussion. Now, this could have been done without a PPT (possibly with the images on paper).
- Extension 3/6: The teacher brought in real world images and maps to help the students better connec the reading to the real world.
Key Instructional Strategies Used: Discussion in small team, guided instruction with the PowerPoint, predicting, questioning.
11/18: A Strong Connection between the learning goals and PPT used.
