IB-OPVL & Mao Lesson Plan

Rating: 4 stars
Used in Course: Not used in course
Submitted by: Laura Collins (Student), Jun 24, 2012

This lesson makes students analyze primary and secondary documents and identify the credibility of each.  This is such an important skill for students and one that is often forgotten.  The OVPL provides the necessary framework for students to do this.  While students are learning important world history content, they are strengthening their literacy skills.

Students are creating written products as result of lesson.  Is it possible to offer another option, like a auditory analysis of source?  Could differentiated products be offered as options? Also, besides the written documents, is it possible for any other multimedia sources to be analyzed? 

Technical Remarks:

Is the internet the only reason the iPad is needed?  If so, could use any computer/device with search engine for this.  For many schools, iPads are not available.

Links to documents could also be provided as hyperlinks for access to the materials for users.
