Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform.

Out of The Dust Glogster


After students have read Out of the Dust, they will create a Glogster. They will write about the theme, use their vocabulary words in writing, write using similes, metaphors, and personification in poetry, compare and contrast Billie Jo’s experience to someone else in history, and be able to pick an option from a list. They will use their creativity to make their poster appealing to the reader.  

Learning Targets: 
Students will describe the theme of the book using evidence from the book.
Students will compare and contrast 2 people’s experiences in history.
Students will create a Glogster.
Students will use creativity.
Students will use similes, metaphors, and personification in writing.
