a. Content objective - students will write a newspaper article about various school-sponsored events from the previous semester (football games/season, school plays, band competitions/concerts, etc.).
b. When I plan to implement - next semester when the preterite is introduced.
c. What tools I plan to use - iPads, netbooks, and Google Docs.
d. Description - Students will divide into small groups (3-4 students) and recall events from the previous semester. In order to describe these events, they will use the preterite tense. The students may choose to collaborate with different periods and use Google Docs to make notes and edit each others' articles.
e. Other classrooms - my classes may interact with Journalism and Yearbook classes at Stratford.
