What teachers are saying about the ME Map Lesson with Sarah Giles
"All my kids LOVE the ME Map. It was a great activity! I can’t wait to see your next lesson!! My kids are still talking about our visit with you! Thanks for what you’re doing for kids" -D. Moore, Grade 2, TX
Everything about our Skype and your lessons was perfect! Setting our foundation for analyzing texts (and eventually having to do a written response ... Our discussions have taken off! - S. Swanger, Grade 4, PA
"It really made the children think about themselves not just the usual things of what they look like from the outside but made them think about themselves as a whole person. The video helped with explaining each part which in turn made the children think more deeply. From a teaching aspect I will definitely use this template and structure when talking and writing about character descriptions as I feel the children were able to talk in far more detail and generate far better ideas by using more internal factors."
- Chris Ingram, 4th grade teacher, Wales, UK
"[We] read the novel in class and created our own 'me maps' to share all the amazing things that make our students unique and wonderful friends! Thanks ... for an amazing Skype session today." Tiffany Dickie, Huntingdon Adult Education and Community Center, Huntingdon, Quebec
