How I Use It
As a part of my ecology/environmental unit. It is a great resource and students can get on it and explore a variety of topics. The lessons on biodiversity and invasive species will be added to my lessons this year. The lesson on persuasive writing about invasive species will be added to my lessons. I really like the fact that they have structured a presentation that I can adapt and change based on what my writing teachers are teaching but I do not have to totally depend on my writing teachers to prepare my students to write a persuasive essay.
My Take
I like what I am seeing, but I will not try it out until we are studying ecology and environmental science. I am excited about what I have found on the website to support and extend my students' learning.
