Creating Context or Background

9ACEG worked in groups today to create a deeper understanding of "The Highwayman".

  • Students were given some information to examine and apply to the ballad.  
  • Then working in groups they presented their ideas about how the information can help others understand "The Highwayman" better.

Groups used a Speech organizer from The Critical Thinking Consortium to aid in presenting the information:

This activity was for practice and next presentation will be based on providing context for "Folk Bloodbath".

This rubric will be used to evaluate students content.
