Thank you for this wonderful lesson plan! I am using it with my 6th grade students enrolled in Tier II RTI. They are able to show what they know about literary terms in a fun and interactive way. Thank you for the tremendous handouts and tutorials. This has been their favorite project so far this year!

I used your structure and rubrics to plan a glog book review for my fifth graders here in Jamestown RI. I think this is an excellent piece of work. I am posting the student glogs to a wiki, and am hoping that I will have other schools joining in this project.

Excellent work! I am going to use this lesson, a bit modified, for my 5th grade Student Learning Objectives. Last year we used Glogster for our 4th grade state reports and the kids just got so excited about the media aspect, it made what was "humdrum" to them, new and exciting. I want to go a step further and post their work on a wiki and invite others to join us. Haven't done it yet, I need to teach searching skills so they can embed connected media with their report, reteach Glogster (it changed a bit with it's Next-Gen glog) but I'll let you know how it comes out. Thanks for the inspiration!!
