Below is my first at liveblog with my students I'm following a lesson plan that I posted in my Scribd.com.
I began class showing the students my blog and having them ask and answer questions. They were really engaged, looking over their resources to find the information. All of them!
Then I asked them to form groups to lead their own conversation tomorrow...they fell apart. I asked them to think of 3 points they wanted to make and what questions they want answered. Their goal was to "develop deeper understanding of what would cause a country to go to war against itself."
I need to think of another scaffold I should add...so that tomorrow's presentations don't go wacko!
