Reflection: How to Buzz (or talk about what we read) - Section 3: Work Time


So, I'm still trying to figure out the perfect amount of time to Buzz. I started with 3 minutes per couple (based on the conversation I had with the other teacher in our workroom. We have 3 minute hall breaks), but next time I think I'm going to try a triad with 4 minutes. It's that weird balance right now: some are finishing early and goofing off, while some are complaining that only one partner was able to sahre. I'm still working on this.

How to Buzz (or talk about what we read)

Unit 5: Independent Reading
Lesson 10 of 20

Objective: SWBAT: talk about what they are reading, or have read with peers.

Big Idea: All of my favorite books have come as recommendations from friends. By "Buzzing" better than an review, students share their reading (and, shhhh, their thinking).
