Scholar:Teacher Cognitve Ratios- Think about how much you are requiring for scholars to do the cognitive lifting in your classroom. (ask yourself, am I thinking through all of the work or am I allowing scholars to grapple with the information on their own or as a team?)
Justification of responses from scholars- require scholars to explain how they reached the answer or believe their answer to be correct.
