Food for Thought (and Discussion)

With the end of the school year mere days away, today’s lesson took a slightly less-structured approach.  With their devices in hand (or through the use of a classroom computer), the students chose from the articles below.  They then got into groups to share what they had read, their thoughts on the article, and how they think those would relate to their lives.  The instructions that were provided to the class are below.

Directions:

  1. Choose from the articles below (some of these are available in printed form at the front table) and read it thoroughly.
  2. Next, join your classmates at the pre-determined locations around the room.
  3. You will each take turns to give a three-point synopsis of each of your articles.
  4. Finally, you will conduct a group discussion about the ideas your articles have in common.  Be creative in seeing how the articles relate to one another.
