In our study of the "Rise to (American) Revolution", we have emphasized to the students that they need to be able to tell the story. We have completed several activities to help in this, including tweeting a timeline of events.
Today we used Google Forms to acquire the story from the students. I liked the fact that all student response were organized neatly in a Google spreadsheet for assessing.
I will copy the student's writing and paste it into an email. My comments will be in red so that they will know the corrections that need to be made.
