  In this module, we reviewed starting and ending your lesson.  For this discussion be sure to complete all readings (located in the Course Schedule) and watch the video on this page then select one of the articles: 

In your initial post address the following prompts:

  • Analyze the “Our Failing Schools” Ted Talk and discuss its potential effect on the current educational landscape.
    • Which parts affected you the most, why or why not?
  • Review the ideas presented in the article and explain why they are interesting to you.
    • Did you agree with the article? Why or why not?
    • Do the ideas on homework presented in the article change how you are developing your unit plan?

In your conversations with your classmates I would like you to explore:

  • Whether their stance has changed or solidified your own personal views on the use of homework.
