RWG Flash - Heritage and Citizenship - research skills


This Read and Write Gold Flash is an example of a lesson using the Research tools of the programme. This lesson includes: internet research skills using the Fact Folder as well as selecting relevant information from various sources using the Highlight toolbar. Although this particular lesson is grade 3 - Pioneer Life, it can be adapted to suit any grade level needs.

Coincidently, the SEA team hosted two curriculum-linked professional development sessions today at Burnamthorpe Adult Learning Centre/ BCI - The East Mall. In the morning participants explored the Interactive Whiteboard and it's use in Differentiated Instruction, Math and the three-part lesson. In the afternoon a session on: Using Read and Write Gold to support the Research Process, was held.
