    Collecting and Documenting Evidence of Learning

    • Teacher will collect evidence from conversation contribution during the creation of the Venn diagram.
    • Students will show evidence through writing one similarity and one difference at end of lesson.

    Teacher Reflection of Learning

    I enjoyed this lesson.  The students enjoyed the video and loved learning that we have more in common with Korean traditions that they originally assumed.  Every opportunity to allow students to see similarities and have connections with a culture outside of their own is another step toward respect, acceptance, and understanding.  Such a powerful opportunity.
