Reflection: Student Led Inquiry Mood Rings - Section 3: Mood Rings


In stead of having the groups share with whole class, you could have them lead a student led sharing. You could have students rotate around to each group sharing what they feel the mood and tone is. Each time they rotate they gain each other's perspective. It would be when this sharing time was over that you could then decide as a class what is the tone and mood. They would make a more informed decision and learn from their peers a deeper understanding of mood.
