Conjunction Junction. . . .
Today we finally hit the last part of speech during our language part of class. Conjunctions. Who knew that Conjunction Junction from Schoolhouse Rock was such a hit? The students begged to watch it. Since time didn’t allow today–we will start the class period off with it tomorrow!
Next, we looked at the six pieces of criteria for evaluating credible websites: authorship, accuracy, currency, content, purpose, and design. Then, students were given a handout (download from yesterday’s detective post) with almost 30 websites. They had to use the rubric to figure out if the websites were credible or not.
There was some great discussion on the websites and students had fun looking at some “kooky” websites!
