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).
Students will write a paragraph about their opinion on a topic and evaluate their writing using a rubric and the Seesaw app.
Students are learning how to state their opinion and give reasons to support that opinion in an organized paragraph.
This was a fun activity. Student’s loved sharing their opinion on things and supporting them with reasons. It was amazing seeing and hearing the students reflect on their writing using the seesaw app. Using the rubric, they were able to really look at the different parts of their writing and talk about the strengths and weaknesses. The students enjoyed doing this and parents loved seeing their child’s work and hearing them reflect on it. I found using seesaw in this way so beneficial that we used it a few times throughout the year to reflect on different writing pieces. I would highly recommend other teachers try this with their class.
