Now I’m thinking I might try...
Shared reading - 3 part - teacher read, student read, jeopardy game
Writing on the desk with expo
Reviewing first and then going into the reading - at first it seemed flipped but was an interesting way to apply the concepts to help guide
Students partnering to solve proofs
the information from the reading to connect to what they already knew
Reading projected on the whiteboard. Have various students read passages
Broadcasting - organization would be difficult, real-world opportunity - the communication level and vocabulary was impressive,
Vocab word walls!
Broadcasting - technical skills was so impressive - so many steps and they all seem to know their job
Using the LMC more… great space and resources
Debate - higher level thinking! Would be interesting to see how kids keep everything organized to be able to research and pull the points
Reading short passages to students
Fowler uses Word Walls, shared reading, and Kahoot!
Inside Outside circle for discussion
Meade uses cards for grouping kids
Student led discussion in Ludwig’s (GREAT STUFF)!
Students were engaged and excited about new terms
The review of material led into the reading
Vocab was posted and reinforced in class
Student led moderated discussion
Debate (prep for trny) - students were game planning, communicating with partners, discussing pros/cons of the issues, the amount of information was extremely high
Broadcasting (prep for KLHS) - students were exhibiting very high levels of communication (volume, vocab, amount)
Writing on the Desks
Engaged students, active participation, vocab displayed
Wide range in literacy abilities of different students at LHS
Literacy goes beyond literature comprehension
KLHS - real world opportunities for students to work in broadcasting. Communication, vocabulary, skills … all critical to the success of the KLHS show!
Hernandez - reading aloud while students take notes
Inside / outside circles allow for conversations
Shared reading in German (motions helped the non-german speaker succeed. Flip Quiz is a jeopardy like game used to determine comprehension
Students were engaged in high levels
Inner Outer discussion wheel. Students have scaffolded questions to help based on their level of readiness. Lively Spanish conversation!
Student run discussions where there were moderators and high levels of student accountability (with limited input from the teacher)
