Literary Analysis is an important stage for students to develop critical thinking skills. Using Bloom’s Taxonomy, analysis is the fourth level. This can be a challenging task because students are learning the story as well as the analysis.
Today’s classrooms are diverse from many viewpoints. There are cultural differences, skills & knowledge differences, and of course, their superpowers or multiple intelligences are different. So what do ELA or computer science teachers do when their classrooms are speckled with students who are logical thinking, movement seekers, spatial lovers, people sensitive, musical thrivers, and linguistic lovers! They turn to Evo by Ozobot whose collaboration projects can accommodate all to yield, instant prolonged happiness!
This webinar, co-hosted by Ozobot Certified Educator Sheila Slawiak, will meld literary analysis with two types of programming seamlessly so teachers can facilitate (project-based) collaborative projects that are robust in nature, accommodate heterogeneous teams, and allow students to share their superpowers while sharing “what they know” with each other, then presenting their project with teachers, parents, and their community.
