Prompts That Get Students to Analyze, Reflect, Relate, and Question

A simple teaching technique that helps students learn. They analyze, reflect, relate, and question via these four prompts:

  • “Identify one important idea … that you learned while completing this activity.”
  • “Why do you believe that this idea … is important?”
  • “Apply what you have learned from this activity to some aspect of your life.”
  • “What question(s) has the activity raised for you? What are you still wondering about?” [You might need to prohibit the answer “nothing”.]

How can we support this reading goal during the school day?

We're officially half-way through the year and if you notice you have items in your room that have been around since the first day of school, it's time to clean up!

#TidyUpTuesday is our new reminder that every Tuesday we should look around our room and find an area that has be ignored. Enlist the help of your students and spend a few minutes each Tuesday going through the clutter. Don't let all the work you put into getting your room ready for school go to waste. #banonhoarding #TidyUpTuesday
