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 (link is external) 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 (link is external).

Using Padlet with a novel study


Students used Padlet walls to post thoughts/connections/questions about their reading of the historical fiction novel My Brother Sam Is Dead. Students were placed into small groups by teacher. Teacher created a Padlet wall for each small group. Group members were asked to post at least two comments per chapter of reading. 

Learning Targets:
