Thank you for your contributions in Week 2. You have completed all Assignments and I thank you for your extensive comments and input. As always, you bring so much new and valuable information to the course and many helpful resources and strategies to share with others.
Your wiki site has some excellent vocabulary and reading resources, including Lingro, Newsela and Rewordify. You can keep adding as you find other technology tools for these skill areas. Many times the best resources are found when we are informally searching.
Your lesson plan topic, Symbolism, provides an engaging topic that incorporates many useful online resources and instructional strategies. I especially like your Symbolism handout and the prediction activity. Task 5, Create a personal seal, is an excellent way to personalize learning. I look forward to the further development of your lesson plan.
Thank you for your continued participation in the course.
