StAIR - Inform or Persuade?

Rating: 5 stars
Used in Course: Not used in course
Submitted by: shaimaa elzeini (Student), May 01, 2013


As Brad mentioned Gitane's statement of the standards upfront was good, and including the instructional objectives....but the common core for LA and ISTE NEts was too much for one powerpoint slide and could be in the appendix for teachers.  That would be one recommendation.  She used a current craigslist and Nation slide for student's examples which are real world examples.

Craigslist has been associated with lots of phishing schemes so some lesson on cautions about websites and security may be in order.  I was pleasantly surprised to see the Craigslist Thailand but using craigslist as an example of persuasive writing was excellent.  It is about sales.  The practice slides were beneficial for the distinguishing part and finding the opinions or judgments as clues was good.  Nice visuals in the STAIR...the Happy face for correct answers was uplifting.

Technical Remarks:

20 minutes was spent reviewing this STAIR.
