Strategy Explanation
 
 
Answer Garden is one of the ways I collect my students' wonderings. It can also be used as a check for understanding. As my students enter their answers, they appear in real-time. If two or more of my students enter the same answer, that answer will get larger. Here, you can see where my students enter their answers on our learning management system.

Virtual Wonderings

I use this strategy to activate my students' interest and prior knowledge on a topic. This gives me a good starting point on the curated video and reading list for the independent station. It also gives my students a visual representation of the range of interests in the class. In my opinion, using the interests of my students to guide instruction is the core of a student-centered classroom.

Individual Instruction
1:1 Interventions

During small group, I am able to give individualized feedback to my students. I want small group to be a safe place where my students can share, ask questions, and be able to learn content and skills authentically. This also gives me the opportunity to clarify misconceptions, to reinforce key learnings by giving my students one-on-one attention and support.
