I'm interested in collecting a handful of prompts/configurations of the glossary module that you have used (and re-used) in your courses. (See example below)
My goal is to create a new "Instruction Block" that lets teachers rapidly design courses using lessons that are trusted and pre-configured.
If you don't have any specific suggestions, could you recommend a friend who is a Glossary Superstar?
Thanks in advance,
Observations from Reading
Every night that you read from Tim O'Brien's novel, The Things They Carried, please also do the following:
Create a glossary item including:
- A name/concept/main idea
- A sentence introducing an idea that you noticed in your reading.
- 1-2 sentences quoted from the text (include page number)
- 2-3 sentences of analysis/evidence that support your idea.
- The soldiers in the story have experiences that they can barely believe are real.
- “A thing may happen and be a total lie; another thing may not happen and be truer than the truth" (p22).
- The narrator summarizes the way that truth becomes a casualty of war. One also wonders what lies are being told in the story and to what purpose.
- approve by default
- always allow editing
- no duplicate entries allowed
- allow comments on entries
- automatically link glossary entries
HOW I TEACH WITH THIS
- See who is up to date on reading
- Select glossaries to discuss/challenge/celebrate with group
- Students co-create a reader's guide while reading
- Provide a variety of ideas for future essay topics
- Assign specific roles to students to review glossary items (angel of repetition, angel of clarity, angel of evidence)
