Reflection: Connection to Prior Knowledge Earth's Changing Surface Vocabulary Preview (Cornerstone Lesson) - Section 2: Engage

 

Many of my lessons involve the quick write strategy at the start of a lesson as part of activating students’ prior knowledge and gets ideas on paper about a new concept or to make a connection to a previously taught one. It provides me with a snapshot student's prior knowledge and direction for moving forward in the lesson. It is a good indicator for concepts that might need to be reviewed or taught. I typically prompt students with a question and give them a certain amount of time to respond. This kind of warm encourages students to practice writing, engage in critical thinking, and write with a purpose. After a quick write, I involve students in a turn and talk practice to discuss their thinking and ideas; therefore, the quick write strategy gives them a chance to gather their ideas and be prepared for a collaborative discussion with their peers.
