Title: Post-Reading Activity (Universe Expanding Text) Group: Jessica, Pheobe, Maryam
Post by: maryama2 on February 28, 2018, 06:30:41 PM
Post-Reading:


Applying the new vocabulary they picked up on from the prior stages, students can be instructed to post on any kind of forum for this post-reading activity.


Instructions:
In a short post (2-3 sentences) , explain what comes to mind when you hear "The expansion of the Universe". Your post can be factual, based on information from the article, and/or can include things from your own imagination.


Make sure your peers will be able to understand you post, because in the next step, you will comment on a peer's post by continuing with how you think universe expansion will progress (future prediction). It is up to you whether the prediction sounds rational or outlandish.


(If your peer's post sounds rational/scientific or fictional you may want to continue in that tone).

Strategy:  Reflect on text understanding
Activity:
First, students will work individually and answer the following questions to check their reading comprehension.
1. Summarize the main idea of this article in 2-3 sentences.
2. After reading the article, does the information from the text confirm your predictions from the pre-reading activities?
Then, students will work in pairs to discuss the main idea of the article.
