Reflection: Student Ownership Energy: What is it? - Section 3: Classifying Energy

 

When working with definitions, it better to have students create their own. If I give the meanings the only person that has ownership is me. If students are allowed input they are more likely to use them and understand them. I use sentence strips to write their definitions. I also allow them to modify their learning as we go. In most cases, students will come up with a very comprehensive and detailed definition as they continue to learn.
