EDU 590 at the High School Level!

The last assigned reading dealt with compare and contrast using the top hat graphic organizer.  Jud Raven's history class is an example.  Students were to compare immigration laws and then write a persuasive essay.

Pre-writing was done using the top hat:

During the day I visited, students were doing peer revising and editing.  Based on feedback, students were continuing to work on their essays.

As the students worked on their papers Mr. Raven and I discussed the need for transitional words in persuasive essays.  Following is a list.  Please feel free to use it.

Kudos to all of the teachers and students using this process!
