Reflection: Modeling Polar Bear Polar Bear - Section 3: Writing Activity


The CCSS are very specific in their expectations for my instruction and what my students need to know.  I need to know my students and their learning styles before I can teach them.  I found that my ELL students need a lot of modeling of everything.  Sometimes I read the story twice with them helping me retell it the second time.  I use videos to re-enforce vocabulary and comprehension.  I teach using Thinking Maps.  I believe thinking maps are visual organizers that help my students remember the content.  I model the writing process at least once.  If it is a new format I use the "I Do", "We Do" method and model it twice.
