I get the great pleasure of spending an hour “teaching” in a classroom next Thursday with some 5th Year students at a school just outside of Sydney, and I thought I’d write a quick post soliciting some ideas for what I might do. They’re just starting a unit on China and will be doing some research about the country and its people, so I’ve been asked to do a lesson that shows kids how to “pull” in information and hit on some of those “manage, analyze, synthesize multiple streams of simultaneous information” (NCTE) skills and literacies that we all need these days. I’ve obviously got some ideas, but I’m wondering, given that very brief lead-in, what ideas do you have that might help me serve those kids well?
