Reflection: Pacing Infer the Cause and Effect and Make a Book Cover - Section 6: Share What You've Learned


Good practice tells me how to deliver a lesson: introduce, teach and review/synthesize.  I always do the introduction because my kids need to know what they will learn and I have the lesson set up to teach and materials ready. The lesson is what I've planned so I follow that and model, guide and then then give the independent practice. However, I sometimes forget to give students a chance to review/synthesize what we've learned in the lesson.

This wrap-up is critical to good teaching. Students need to hear how the vocabulary, modeling and practice all work together for the big idea. Here's how I reviewed this lesson. Make and effort to do this, even writing yourself a reminder if need be, to do this for every lesson. The kids will walk away with a summary in their minds of what they learned in the lesson.
