8th Grade - The Human Spirit - From Roberta
The goal was to assess student understanding of human spirit vs. human nature. Students were required to respond to two questions raised on ! the slides created.
The theme for the year in our Social Studies class is the human spirit. After an initial discussion in the classroom, I wanted to see what individual students were thinking. I found pictures using google images that dealt with the concept. I used other examples in the VoiceThread Digital Library to instruct students in the use of VoiceThread. After doing so. I presented the assignment. Students were required to comment on two of the five slides created. A link was created to a Weebly website so students could easily access the VoiceThread.
Creating the slides.
I used a Weebly site to have students access the VoiceThread and Google images for creation of slides.
It would be important to instruct students to plan for their comments before making them.
