  1. Hi Da’zha! After reading your lesson plan, I am confused where Instagram comes into play? I know that you mentioned iMovie for the students to use, but under technology it says Instagram. I am also confused on your assessment. Is there a correct order that you expect them to pick in order to be right, or is this up to the students to be able to pick their picture to be first, middle, and end if it makes sense? Otherwise, I think your lesson idea is very good and I could see myself using it in the classroom one day.

    1. Instagram is the actual lesson itself where they would upload random pics and have another student comment, telling a story (including a beginning, middle, and end). The iMovie is for the assessment to make sure they understand the sequence of events. Making sure that understand that the beginning comes first, then the middle, and the end is the conclusion. The story on iMovie will already be made and they have to see if they can successfully piece it together in the right order!
