SDAIE Stratergies EDSS 555
This would a great exercise that could be implemented into a P.E. classroom. Hot Topics - Students title a sheet "Hot Topics". This sheet is kept in an accessible place in their notebooks or portfolios. Students brainstorm with the teacher on possible topics of interest related to the content of the course. Each student writes down at least ten Hot Topics and adds to the list throughout the year. Students occasionally choose one Hot Topic and write in depth on the topic as a class assignment or as homework. These may be included in their portfolios. In the P.E. class that I am at right now requires students to have binders where they will put assignments and activities into. As we go through sport units we could have them give hot topics regarding these sports. This will give them opportunity to read and write about something of their own interest.
