1.10.2. Review Example: IDP Reading, research processing, attendance and outside lives were struggles coming in. Government was the umbrella: how can you make change through the system? Project: (loose) change minds of voters/peers/power holders by inspiring them to act. We had a specific end product in mind: Media Production for a real world audience. A video or mash-up of media projects presented digitally. Classroom full of trauma teacher trauma student trauma how it looked establishing trust and student responsibility (Maury) Found ways to include students that satisfied the transferrable skills poems interviews collaboration project management and accountability script storyboarding backing into research taking a stance and an action as a group supported by research-based evidence and individual contributions. Successful take-aways adding options to fit student interest re-directing/co-managing student disruptions (easier for an outsider, but showed promise) outside experts livened up the process allowing students to find their niche lead to pride and leadership the umbrella subject area and topic allowed students to find what interested them. strong opinions rippled into subtopics (personal, problems with the consensus) the content of the Government class came back around in the end. sunk in with the application of the project.

1.14.1. Collaborative Activity - Digital Responsiveness Presentation Part 1 - Small Group Work 1. Group Discussion (5 min)- role: note taker, TS scenarios, fear they face in opening up to this, what they hope they can do through TS 2. Each group write 3 sentences (role: scribe) that frame student trauma and teacher response. You choose how to record it (type, pencil). You choose the style of the sentence. Example: trauma/response/hope&fear. Playing roles. Explaining. Posing a question. 3. Highlight a key word or phrase in each sentence. 4. Choose a color connected to a word on the mood meter that fits the tone of each sentence. Part 2 - Adobe Spark Groups sign in (whoever wants) then decide if you will: Search for and connect an image for each sentence that fits the tone/mood/color. Add the highlighted text. Record the sentence. Rhys trains folks to take over as I move around to help. If it’s not your turn, keep searching, tweaking. If you do one, turn in your piece to the Classroom assignment. Otherwise mAke sure your scenario is recorded somehow.

1.14.2. HOMEWORK! HOMEWORK: journal/reflect on at least 1 scenario (post it to the classroom (assignment with due date) that requires a TIP for next time. Write it in a doc OR Screencast it.
