Discussion for international baccalaureate Action Lesson
Karen Soles (Teacher (K-12))
The lesson addressed the need described. It was appropriate for the ages and grade levels. The introduction and focus being set with literature was an engaging activity. Additionally, including video into the presentation increased attention and address other UDL standards. Skype was a great technological tool to incorporate while having a collaborative meeting with students in other places. Good character education lesson.
No problems accessing the lesson

This is an outstanding lesson to get students to take action. Character education means a lot coming from a principal. I am interested in the book, One by Kathryn Otoshi, that you used in the lesson and plan to buy a copy to use in my classroom. Bullying is a huge issue during recess at my school. Teaching students how to take action will be extremely beneficial for the well-being of the school and each classroom. A YouTube video and Skype were used to appropriately integrate technology into the lesson. The captions on the YouTube video enable to students to view what is being said, but it may be helpful for someone to read the captions (in English) for the auditory learners in the classroom. This technology also introduces students to children in different cultures, which will hopefully help students appreciate one another and the similarities and differences among us.
