Reflection: Student Ownership Sorting Quadrilaterals - Section 2: Mini-Lesson


Several times throughout this course, I have students create graphic organizers with definitions and other information. As students create their organizer, they take ownership of their work. I do not give the students a vocabulary sheet. The students create their own. This helps them to better understand the terms and apply it where needed. The act of opening and closing the graphic organizer also helps students retain information.
