Reflection: Adjustments to Practice So Scheduled! - Section 1: Questionnaire


I think that simply filling out a questionnaire is a little dry, and I've been looking for ways to mix up this activity. I noticed that Amy Coughanor does something really interesting when she is going over expectations with her students in this lesson: Setting Expectations.

At my school, we have to go over expectations in a slightly different way, but I loved her idea of posting different questions around the room on anchor charts. I was thinking I could post the Questionnaire questions all around the room and conduct a similar lesson as Amy, by having kids answer some of these questions on Post-It Notes, and then posting them on anchor charts for kids to read.
