What Students Really Need to Hear [Video]

I told cha!

Now that we are preparing to collect tablets the roar of "But...", "We need them...", You wanted us to use the, now that we are you are taking them away..." - We know and understand the cries but with testing quickly approaching in just a few instructional days tablet inventory is very extensive. Now look how much some of you have grown to love and live with the tablets. When true personalization begins to happen the technology does not become a want but a need in order to meet each individual student where they are. The tablets or technology will NEVER replace good teaching. Do what you do best in the absence of the tablets...TEACH!

Say Something

This strategy provides students with opportunities to construct meaning and monitor their understanding. It establishes a very clear and simple method for helping students make clear connections to text, especially when the material is especially complex.

Strategy was modified to be used in Math class as well.
