Using Nings in the classroom

November 10th, 2009 · No Comments · Assignments, LCCs, Project Learning, Tech Classrooms, WOW

I have copied a blog post for my English I class.  We are currently reading Up From Slavery by Booker T. Washington.  We are reading the story (with either a podcast of me reading the story or a student volunteer. )   Our assignments so far have been to generate: a timeline of national and personal events from the time of Booker T. Washington’s life; several All Write Round Robin with students responding to theme based prompts; and several quick quizzes. 

I want to use the last few days working on a Ning I created for our novel study.  It is the second Ning that I have created but the first one that I have used.  Will let you know how it turns out.

Your next assignment will be to create a Podcast of your interview as Booker T. Washington.  You must: have a partner be your Interviewer and you must answer at least 10 questions in character.  Remember that you are Booker T. Washington and therefore you must answer as though you were him.  For example, as Booker T. Washington you cannot list a car as a mode of transportation.
