Reflection: Rigor Dog Breeding - Artificial Selection - Section 3: Explain


The Venn diagram supports one of Marzano's 9 High Yield Instructional Strategies - identifying similarities and differences. The comparison supported by a 2 circle Venn is just the start of the thinking. Once students have done their sorting/classifying they need the challenge of justifying their thinking.

Learn NC (from the University of North Carolina) has an excellent article that expand the traditional 2 circle Venn in many interesting and rigorous ways.
