Using the Fish Bowl Strategy to teach Persuasive Writing
Students’ age range: 12-14
Main subject: Language arts and literature
Topic: “Cell phones , A Teaching tool or a Distraction.”
 
Description: 1. I reviewed the concept and purposes of persuasive writing with students. Reminded them that the primary aim of persuasive writing is to persuade a reader to adopt a certain point of view or to take a particular action.
2. I explained that persuasive writing is often used to promote a product or service, in print and online advertisements as well as in television and radio commercials. Since the primary aim is to influence others, this type of writing focuses on the reader. I explained that, in an attempt to influence a person's viewpoint or actions, advertisements concentrate on winning the attention of their targeted audience by engaging them with appealing verbal or visual material.
3.I engaged students in a discussion about the advantages and disadvantages of the use of cell phones in school. Have volunteers gave experiences they have observed that the use of cell phones was a distraction or teaching tool.

Light
Students’ age range: 06-08
Main subject: Sciences
Topic: Light passes through an assortment of material.
 
Description: • Place all of the items (flashlight, candle, lamp, wax paper, cling wrap, foil paper) on a table in a central location.
• Pick up each of the items and discuss with the class whether it is transparent, translucent, or opaque and how we know it lets light through, lets some light through, or lets no light through.
• Divide students into five groups of two and allow them to investigate the passage of light through an assortment of material using a source of light and transparent, opaque and translucent materials.
• Students will observe the characteristics of each object and how it interacts with light.
• Students will share and predict how the wrapping paper does not allow light to pass through. For example: the glass or candle holder allows most light to pass through; the fabric softener sheet allows only some light to pass through.
