Graffiti Padlet
link: ​

Students will be able to collaborate on a Padlet board to synthesize main ideas and key
points from Chapter 3 of “Saying it well: Instruction that supports academic language
development in the disciplines” in an easily shareable medium that allows for other students to
offer relative feedback in a timely manner. The Padlet will allow for students to work in a small
group that can work together to create a visual board made up of textual evidence and related
images to answer a given prompt and synthesize ideas relating to the text. Padlet offers a
comment section on each padlet board that will allow other students to comment on each
other’s Padlet boards to offer feedback on the board and to relate the information on each post
to other ideas and information. This is a great strategy and tool to use when either opening or
closing on a topic because it allows for students to organize their knowledge on the topic while
allowing all students to actively participate whether they are in person or online.

Discussion strategy materials:

● Electronic device with internet access (Chromebook, Smartphone, etc.)
● Padlet board with questions
● Prior Reading of Chapter 3 “Saying it well: Instruction that supports academic language
development in the disciplines”

1. Students will have completed a prior reading of the article
2. Teacher will group students into groups of 4 or 5
3. Teacher will direct students to the padlet link and ensure all students have access before
beginning the assignment
4. Students will collaborate with peers to synthesize information from the reading and
answer the prompted questions on the padlet board by using text and images to portray
their knowledge of the text.
5. After students finish their own Padlet posts, they will look at other group’s Padlet posts
and leave comments responding to the information presented on at least three other

Questions to ask:
1. Ask students to identify 3 things that they learned from the article.
2. Ask students to identify 2 things that they will use in their future classroom.
3. Ask students to identify 1 thing that surprised them in the reading.
Closing thoughts:
● After the students discuss their thoughts and ideas with their group, they will share the
same ideas with other peers that they have not shared with before.
● Each student will make sure to address the 3 things they learned from the article, 2
things that they will practice in the future, and 1 thing that surprised them from the
