Think abouts during lesson planning

I came across this resource from Safe and Civil Schools that I thought might be helpful when thinking through various activities.


* Can students engage in conversations with each other during this activity? Voice Level?

* How many students can be involved in a single conversation?

* How long can the conversation last?


* How do students get questions answered? How do students get your attention?

* If students have to wait for help, what should they do while they wait?


* What is the expected end product of this activity?


* Can students get out of their seats during the activity? (sharpen pencil, drink, restroom, get materials, etc)

* Do they need permission from you?


* What behaviors show that students are participating fully and responsibly?

* What behaviors show that a student is not participating?
