This Closing Time Segment is reflected both physically and digitally. My students have a section of their digital agendas that details the summary questions and next steps for the following classes so that my students are aware of exactly what to take care of before the upcoming period. While they assess what needs to be prepared for next time, they can save their work, clean up the area around them that is often cluttered with science materials.

Closing Time

Science can be messy and my students are often in such a rush to take care of the priorities for the next class that they forget to clean up their work and physical area appropriately. Closing Time reminds my students of their obligations for the end of a class period and standardizes a system that promotes personal responsibility for all class materials. During this time, I list all of the upcoming class assignments and events on the board, so that my students can begin thinking about future activities when they've finished cleaning up and closing down. Coupling this strategy with a tool like Remind 101 keeps my students aware of what is expected of them outside of class time.

Remind is a digital communication tool that changes the way students and teachers can interact outside of the classroom. This tool keeps students in the loop about upcoming activities and expectations and keeps identities and phone numbers private to prevent unnecessary intrusions into student privacy. When using Remind, I carefully select what I want to communicate to my students and only send that information periodically, so that they are not so overwhelmed with information that they stop checking.

Assessment & Data
Pop The Bubble

The flipped mastery model gives students loads of time to work independently, so every few weeks we like to bring the class together to play a game. Pop The Bubble, which my coteacher Mr. Elizondo came up with, is hands down the students' favorite. Each team of students gets 5 bubbles, and when they get a question right, they can pop another teams' bubble. The last team with bubbles remaining wins the game. It's a great twist on the traditional Kahoots quiz game.


 
Instructional Planning
Daniel's Approach to Planning

Planning is an essential part of a blended teacher’s practice. In blended environments, where students can be at different points in a course on various modalities, blended teachers need to be very intentional about how they plan.
