Organizing information: Day 131

Today, students spent time in their Wikipedia working groups sorting their pink cards into categories and then finding trends in their research. By the end of the day, students were able to create an outline of their categories with a brief overview of what they would write in each.

For example:

Outline for Crazy Girl Crush (a made-up novel created by Ms. Garvoille)

1. Major themes

– hormones: body image, repressed sexuality, coming to terms with hormones

– desire for marriage

2. Reception

– genre

– general positive reviews

– general negative reviews

– negative reviews about feminism

etc. for every section you have boxes checked for!

HW: None for tonight. Meet in the Media Center tomorrow.
