Overview: This template is designed to be placed over a written or visual source and provides a scaffolding framework to help students develop source work evaluations skills.
Taking it further:
- Ask students to focus on the issues highlighted in the left-hand column first and make annotations as appropriate. Then they swap with a partner, read the work done so far, and focus on the issues covered in the top row. Display the work when it’s finished.
- Ensure each student has a different source. When the work is finished, remove the sources from the templates. Different students have to match the overlay to the source it was originally evaluating.
