3 R's: Revolution, Reaction and Reform

Ms. DiMaggio's 4th graders explore the essential but complex concepts of revolution, ...

Ms. DiMaggio's 4th graders explore the essential but complex concepts of revolution, reaction, and reform. They begin with what she calls a "Quick Write" in which students independently write about anything they know about the three given words. Students then discuss what they've written in small groups. Next, students rotate around the room in teams to analyze photos of historical events responding in writing with ŇI see. . . I think. . . I wonder. . .. Ms. DiMaggio was careful in selecting a wide variety of photos to post given the complexity of these concepts and to address possible misconceptions or limits to understanding. For example, some students initially focused on the word ŇrevolutionÓ being related to war or the 1800's. When they analyzed a photo of technology, they quickly realized a broader definition of "revolution".

Algebra teachers, Juliana Jones and Marlo Warburton, have common philosophies and expectations in their algebra classrooms but use their own unique teaching styles and structures to create consistent experiences for students. Collaboration is an important part of that process and allows teachers to provide common learning experiences in their classrooms despite different teaching styles and structures. This video takes a look at the warm-up, lesson, strategies for group work, classroom expectations and routines to discuss commonalities but also identify ways in which each teacher personalizes their classrooms based on their own teaching style and personality.

The lesson begins with note taking during which students use the Cornell note-taking strategy. Guided practice follows during which Mr. Munn's focus is assessment. Both he and the students assess what they are getting and not getting before moving on to the final lesson component of independent practice.

Analyze Literature Critically Using the SIFT Method

Ms. Berkowitz and Coleytown Middle School students prepare for a class discussion comparing the tone/theme of two different poems by systematically breaking down the individual poems using the SIFT method (symbolism, imagery, figurative language, tone/theme). Working independently, students identify examples of the first three components before making decisions about the overall tone and theme of the work. In small groups, students then discuss their findings and compare elements of the two poems. Ms. Berkowitz transitions to a larger class discussion by focusing on the differing tone and theme found in the poems and sharing how literary elements contribute to understanding the tone/theme.

As part of a unit on neuroscience, 6th graders in Channa Comer's class work in teams to design football helmets to protect against brain injury. Using eggs to model the brain, groups design helmets that will keep the egg from cracking. Channa takes her class through the steps that engineers use when working on a design, from brainstorming to final testing. The students work within two constraints-- the helmet has to stay on the head and the helmet has to prevent the skull from cracking. After the groups work together to design helmets, they test, revise, and retest their designs as necessary.

The Art of Questioning: Content, Meaning and Style
Rating

Ms. Schaefer leads her 12th grade ELA students through a critical analysis ...

Ms. Schaefer leads her 12th grade ELA students through a critical analysis of Atul Gawandes 'The Case of the Red Leg' through careful sequencing of questions.Initial questions ask students to react to the content of the text, forming and justifying their own opinions or perspective. This allows a maximum number of students to access the content and increases participation in the discussion. Questions then address the broader meaning of the text, using students understanding of the content to develop meaning and consider alternative points of view. Finally, questions focus on the style of writing and how stylistic elements contribute to the meaning found in the text.Structuring questions systematically gives students a tool for analyzing literature apart from the classroom so that their analysis is not dependent on teacher facilitation. Explicitly teaching students how to question is just as important as the analysis.
