Discuss Readings

Some questions/issues to consider while discussing the readings:

  • (Aardvarks) Based on what you have read over the past two night; will your read misconception research before you teach your lesson? Why or why not?

  • (Adult Learners) How do you determine what misconceptions your students come to class with?

  • (Green Beaners) What will you do as a teacher to help tackle these misconceptions?

  • (C0untesses) What is the purpose or value of knowing student misconceptions?

  • (Under Construction) To what extent do these misconceptions affect students throughout life?


Website Review

Groups will review each other's website and offer criticism / feedback. (Aardvarks -> UnderConstruction -> Green Beaners -> Countesses -> Adult Learners -> Aardvarks)

Additionally, each individual should pick someone in the group they are reviewing, and offer a critique of their individual site.


Remaining Morning + Lunch

You should have plenty to do, so keep working! Movies (both digitially and on tape) are due at 1pm.



It's movie time!

You have movies ... we have movies!
