The ASOT Reflection
Region 9 High Reliability Schools-March 2018
It's that time of year...
These three elements have a common thread in that we want our students to know and understand that it's ok to be wrong. In fact, that's where we learn. If you have a few minutes, watch this TEDTalk on "Being Wrong."
Once you've read through the information below, be sure to check out and add to our collaboration of Review, Revise and Reflect using the QR code or link you'll find just before the ASOT in Action section.

Strategies in Element 20 "focus on helping students remember, practice, and examine new information on a deeper level" (BART, p. 105). At this point, we want students to be able to show how they do something, correct errors in thinking and make connections between prior learning. Some strategies to help students revise knowledge include:
- Academic Notebook Entries/Review/Peer Feedback
- Assignment Revision
- Using Visual Symbols
Reflecting on Learning
- Reflective Journals
- Think Logs (asks students what skills they used)
- Exit Slips
- Knowledge Comparison

City View Elementary
She got responses like "I learned that 'mumbo jumbo' is just talking nonsense," "I learned that adding figurative language, sensory details, facts, examples, and quotes make for good writing," and "We learned about different hooks. We can use onomatopoeia and setting."
Ms. Frazier said she wanted students to own their learning, and this very quick activity showed her that her students are retaining knowledge.
