Inform students that they will be spending two to three days conducting independent research in an effort to identify their ‘sparks’ – issues that inspire them to take action.
Distribute the Spark handout and go over it with students.
Model how to use the handout to guide note-taking and text response on an electronic document.
Students begin reading and researching, using the handout to guide their note-taking and text response. They should not write on the handout, but take notes in an electronic document as modeled by the teacher.
At the end of the lesson, students print their notes and turn them in to the teacher for evaluation.
