Post-Workshop Debriefing
From A Teacher's Eyes
How might you incorporate the PREZI collaborative mind mapping tool with the ELLs in YOUR classroom? What are some of the classroom management challenges you must consider?
LARGE GROUP DISCUSSION
We put together a lesson plan which focused on content specific text. Using the mind mapping strategy, I arranged to use current event articles to address the First Amendment.
We had originally planned to have students use the Prezi Collaboration feature in order to outline the articles. Initially, the plan was to have the students create a political cartoon, to help explain the relationship between the First Amendment and the Article(s).
When we spoke to the 8th grade teacher, she suggested a more quantifiable assessment. We tailored the assessment to so each group would fill out a prompted organizer, using the article.
Unfortunately, the SBAC ruined our plans.I never had the opportunity to present the lesson, though we had all other details worked out.
The moment you've
been waiting for...
During this workshop, you will put your new Prezi account to use.
As Digital Natives
Now it's your turn to COLLABORATE via PREZI

ROLE PLAY TASK:
you are an 8th grade student,
born in the technological age....
a true digital native!
Political Cartoon
What was the article about?
How does this article positively portray the First Amendment?
How does this article negatively portray the First Amendment?
Are there any instances of irony seen in the article? What about Humor?
How can your group represent the whole article in a short comic?
Using at least one direct quote from the article, create a political cartoon

Teachers need to arm ELLs with:
Sentence Stems/Prompts
Vocabulary
for clarifying, negotiating, building off ideas, tactful criticism or suggestions for improvement
Syntactical structures
for asking questions, making suggestions, sandwiching constructive criticism

Another way to
visualize relationships
between information bits.

Group like information together through lines, space, or otherwise.

Put ideas as they come to you on a piece of paper, whiteboard or computer screen.

Another way to visualize relationships between information bits is to create an idea web/cluster/or map.

These each look different but each serve you by grouping like information together through lines, space, or otherwise.

Typically each of these tools allows you to put ideas as they come to you on a piece of paper.

Then you begin to connect those ideas as you see fit or as you think your audience would, or both, or some other way.

WHY DO WE NEED TO PROVIDE ELLs WITH TURN & TALK TOOLS, ESPECIALLY WHEN TRYING TO SOLVE COMPLEX PROBLEMS?
Especially if we want our ELLs to particpate in Depth of Knowlege Level 4 tasks:

Why do history teachers love PREZI?

By allowing presenters to collaborate online and embed multimedia tools, Prezi provides a tool that is exciting for both the presenters and the audience.
The ease of grouping items is a useful tool for history teachers who want to model graphic organizations, as well as a helpful medium for students to display their cognitive process as they tackle challenging problem solving tasks.

Prezi's features offer a way to plan, construct, and present historic topics in a multimedia manner that applies digital tools in a Web 2.0 collaborative fashion.

Everyone will randomly be assigned to a group, with each group working together, in real time, to fill in the graphic organizer on the PREZI canvas.
