Reflection: Student Feedback Tracking Trends: Using Fossils for Evidence of Climate Change (Day 1 of 2) - Section 4: The Classroom Flow: Small Group Discussions


Students came to me after this class to share out that this small group conversation today made our material 'click' for them.  I was really happy to see that the combination of a strong discussion protocol and a highly engaging, relevant topic resulted in a high level of conversation using primary text materials.  

Please see some of my students' written feedback for more information about their thoughts connecting how scientists do their work and the challenges and fun that comes with working with fossil data and research techniques. Here is short video with more information on this topic.
