Reflection: Modeling The Golden Lion Tamarin Comes Home: Socratic Seminar Continued - Define the relationship. - Section 2: Guided Practice


I paused with 7 minutes remaining of the time to showcase one of my partnerships.  I gave a whole-class clap and scholars put their hands on their head and eyes on me.  Then, scholars listen to a partnership give & receive feedback.  I noticed that as I circulated, some scholars were re-reading, others were adding to their T-charts, but very few were actually rehearsing.  Therefore, I paused to show how to rehearse.  1 scholar practices answering the question while the other scholar listens.  The second scholar gives feedback to the first scholar on 4 of the discussion behaviors (on topic, professional body language, quality of comment, and respectfully agree/disagree).  

This explicit modeling helped tremendously and I saw MANY more partnerships actually rehearsing after I regrouped scholars.   If I were to teach this again, I would model this during the teaching strategy.
