I created the Tapletop Twitter lesson plan to introduce students to informative texts in a fun and interactive way. The lesson requires students to work collaboratively and cooperatively in small groups to read and analyze a quote from an informative text, identify three main ideas about their quote and write them down on a piece of poster paper. After this, the groups of students walk around the room and write a thoughtful comment or question on the other group’s posters. As a whole group, students share their thoughts on the quote, reflecting on how their thinking has changed about the quotations. Below are photos of the students’ finished work. View full lesson plan.
