Product Description
This is a short group activity developed for a full unit built around Flowers for Algernon and the essential question "In what situations, if any, should man attempt to control his environment?" Specifically, I use this activity along with Google Classroom to help during in-class remediation; I identify based on test scores and other assessments which students need small-group remediation and which ones do not. The students who do not require remediation are grouped and given this assignment to help them explore the concepts within the novel in context with the real world; this allows me to work the remediation group without giving the others busy work or wasting instructional time.

Students are given an informational article from the web and linked to two videos. With guiding questions, students lead their own discussion and then report or post answers to these questions.

This activity would work well with any unit that explores segregation, ADHD/ADD, disability, or the power of education.

This assignment promotes 21st-century learning and independent exploration. I do not grade this assignment, though it may be easily assigned a grade. I simply monitor from afar while doing hands-on activities with the other group.
