BACKGROUND SCENARIO

Mr. Stephanopoulos is a 9th grade English Language Arts teacher who is beginning a unit on Greek mythology and The Odyssey. He wants students to recognize and document allusions to Greek mythology in popular culture (advertising, entertainment, etc.) as part of an informative writing project. He decides to use Class Notebooks as a collaborative space for students to share their research and writing.

Mr. Stephanopoulos creates a Classical Mythology section in his Class Notebook for the project. Within the section, he uses the different sections for specific purposes:

Content Library: This section is read only, which means students can view and download the materials but not upload or alter anything. Mr. Stephanopoulos posts assignment details here, including due dates and grading criteria. He also uploads a number of short myths here that he wants students to read. He also posts a graphic organizer here that students need to copy and fill out as a planning step for their final essay.

Collaboration Space: This is an area of the notebook where students can upload materials and edit. Mr. Stephanopoulos has his students post allusions to Greek mythological characters, stories, etc., in this section. These can be images, sections of text, video clips, URLs, GIFs, or any other form of media. He creates an area for each student so it's easy to keep track of how many submissions each student has contributed. Because students within and across his classes can see each other's submissions, it's easy for them to share ideas for sources of allusions.

As students begin writing their papers, Mr. Stephanopoulos also has them share their introductory and conclusion paragraphs in the Collaboration Space. This allows students to see different approaches to opening and closing their essays. They can also give each other feedback here.

Student Page: Mr. Stephanopoulos has his students compose their essays in this space. He is able to monitor their progress as they write and provide support as needed.
