6 word story

In #ISTE19: What's Your 6 Word Story? From Lisa Nielsen: The Innovative Educator, Lisa Nielsen shares a way to use a 6-word story.

I like this idea about using it to summarize things in the classroom.

Students can use 6 words to summarize the following:

·      A chapter they read.
·      A story that was told.
·      A video that was watched.
·      A lecture being given.
·      A proposal that they want to make about a future topic.
·      A conversation with another person.

This is a great way to practice listening skills. Many times, in a conversation, people are thinking about what they want to say instead of what the other person is saying. This would help the listener focus on what is being said.

I’m going to give this a try so that I can have several examples to show students.

Have you tried this? What other ways can a student use this technique? Please share.
