This CONNECTED to what I already know because I place importance for students to see the big picture and understand why what we are learning in class makes a connection to their everyday lives.
I was able to EXTEND my thinking by using this as an engaging formative assessment to see if students are getting the big picture. The feedback informed me places that I needed to clarify any misconceptions.
A CHALLENGE for me is how to differentiate for students to complete the task. Some students finish in just a few minutes, some students took way too long making it look nice rather communicating information. Some groups wrote paragraphs rather than a headline.
