Strand 6: Standard 2:
2 class periods of 60 minutes each
In a shared Google Slide presentation, students will create one slide to present the highlights of their research papers or projects. They will include their research question, thesis statement, and show one credible source they used.
Students will need access to Chromebooks (or similar devices), and individuals will need Google accounts. The classroom will also need a projector and screen on which the classroom teacher or teacher librarian can project the slides.
Teachers must know how to use Google slides. They must have also previously taught a lesson on evaluating information sources for credibility.
Students must have completed a research assignment in which they learned about research questions and thesis statements. Additionally, they must have previously had a lesson on finding credible research sources. They must also know how to use a shared Google document and Google Slides.
Students will synthesize their research and put the information in a Google Slide. They will present their findings to the class. They will show one information source they used and explain how they know it is credible.
After students have learned about finding credible research sources and completed a research assignment (such as a paper), they will present their findings to the class.
Students will access a shared Google Slide presentation and each person in the class will be assigned a number.
Students will use their assigned number to answer the questions and complete the corresponding slide.
Students will present their slides in 1-2 minute turns.
