Students are not able to make connections across cultures with this worksheet format.
Teachers in St. Charles Parish must follow the state curriculum.
Students will have a steep learning curve with this new software.
I will give the students time to create a Coggle on any topic they would like so they can learn the software.
I must model this action for students.
Students will be tempted to "play" around instead of adding important content.
I must continually monitor student progress.
Expectations (positive outcomes)
