Reflection: Connection to Prior Knowledge Archaic Archives - Section 1: Opening the Chapter


An easy way to open an lesson is by having a discussion that reviews what have learned and allows children to add their own thoughts and prior knowledge. Discussions of this type are usually led by the teacher, but once they get rolling I try to step back and only facilitate by prompting with more questions. Students who have more back ground knowledge on a particular subject can get the chance to share more of what they know with the class when the discussion takes on a review type approach.

Unit 17: Researching Basics
Lesson 9 of 10

Objective: SWBAT read, write, and collaborate with peers about an Archaic Native American group to have better understanding of the text that they can then share with the class.

Big Idea: To read a complex text and understand multiple Native American groups is hard. Students have a hard time remembering all of the facts that are within the text. In this lesson, students will work in small groups to answer text embedded questions.
