Reflection: Student Ownership Now hear this! - Section 3: Exploration ~ the wave crest


In this video, before we go on a listening walk, students are figuring out how they might like to record. 

See how in a student-centered classroom, student ideas are validated and are central to the decision about how to record.

I then took student ideas a step farther, using this opportunity to remind them of the ways that scientists record, and then gave them a rubric to glue into their science journals.
