This is a lesson for students first to get to know the online resource called Wordle. Wordle is an online site where you type in or inset words that are 'clouds'. The font, layout, color, and language can be changed. Students use this site to share words that describe themselves. Then the students teach peers about the site. Finally, students complete a cumulating assignment connected to a social studies project on one of the 50 states in the United States. Students type in key words to describe important facts about their assigned state. Students use the Wordle as a visual tool during their project presentation.
Escellent lesson! I love how you are incorporating both social studies and language arts into one lesson and then utilizing technology to enhance its effectiveness. Also, I like the aspect of students teaching one another and working on their public speaking/presentation skills in this lesson. The objectives are well defined and standards are listed. I will definately use this lesson style in my classroom.

Great lesson. It was clearly labeled and extremely easy to follow. Goals and objectives are clearly defined. There is also a clear rubric which has an appropriate scoring scale as well as relevant categories for the assignment. Finally, I love how the lesson has students teaching each other, as this not only reinforces their own understanding but may provide clarity to students who are struggling.
