Component Evaluation: Mo-Vay’s Way – Responding and Working Through
Timing: 15 minutes
Mode: In-class; Online
MoVay’s Way allows students to engage with complex ideas in an open and innovative way. Students can begin by watching the puppet show. Free writing, in response to the puppet show, is a good way to motivate your students to think outside the box. Also, allowing your students the flexibility of writing from free flowing thoughts can remove any worry or anxiety that students may struggle with when writing. At the end of the free write, have your students underline their favourite sentence and invite them to share it with the rest of the class. At this point students can also download and respond to Lori E.’s Artist’s Statement. These exercises can be done in-class or online.
