Reflection: Checks for Understanding The Golden Lion Tamarin Comes Home: Socratic Seminar - Describing the Relationship Between 2 or More Concepts - Section 2: Teaching Strategy


I did a quick check for understanding to see how much scholars remembered from the previous lesson before releasing them into guided practice.  I asked scholars to tell me what facts we learned about golden lion tamarin's and humans.  No one was able to recall anything.  We took our district-wide benchmark the last two days, and I think that scholars forgot what we did prior to the benchmark.  Therefore, I had to add about 15 minutes to this section.  I went back and re-read The Golden Lion Tamarin pages 630-631.  I modeled how to record facts about humans and golden lion tamarins on my T-chart.  I modeled how to think about the relationship: how are these facts related to one another?  Then, scholars recorded my example on their T-chart so that they had an example to follow going into the guided practice.  Here is my model on the visualizer.
