Our first evaluation in ESST was focused around a presentation that helped us understand a certain outcome. I wanted to make sure that for future reference that I have all of my classmates presentation topics and ideas to help me when I am developing lessons. The purpose of the blog post is not to dive into the different topics that were explored but instead to have a reference for future to use these ideas. Please feel free to click on any of the links below and explore the different topics that my classmates created small activities on.

Our section evaluation piece was based on the creation of a creative set that would connect to the unit that you would be starting but also would present the information in such a way that would engage the students. These sets included:
- Scavenger Hunts
- Small Activities
- Introduction to Unit Routine
Creative sets are a very important part of lesson planning because you need to grab your students interest in a topic before you start teaching the material. This will ensure that they are paying attention, actively engaging and ultimately creating meaning making. In my ECS 3o1 class, we were asked to come up with as many creative sets as we could. Some ideas that came up included:
Creative Sets could be about: Voice, Actions, Interest, Intrigue and Wonder. The set should relate to the end of the lesson. What is it that I want them to know at the end of this lesson.
Until next time, thank you for reading my blog!
