In the design of my lessons I tried to incorporate as many of the 6 C's into my lessons as possible. Creativity: I had students design slides to share about themselves. Collaboration: Students collaborated on writing and reading projects to share ideas. Critical Thinking: Students got the chance to brainstorm problems in small groups in response to videos, process big concepts and small foreshadowing. Communication: Students learned to communicate with various forms of technology tools for written response and feedback, teaching peers tips on programs, talk about feelings during mindfulness, write short stories and edit each other's work for organization and grammar. Global Citizenship: Students played rice games that taught about world hunger, read articles about current events on Newsela (an online literature resource) to embrace and empathize with other cultures. Character: We used games to learn how to Utilize Connectivity and learn digital citizenship respectfully and how to be safe on the internet as to not have information be compromised.
