Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Climate Change: It's All Around Us (Day 2 of 3) - Section 3: The Classroom Flow: Four Corners Discussions


When I piloted this lesson last year, I felt dissatisfied with the strength of the four corners discussion piece because it seemed to me that some students were highly functional within this framework while others were not.  This year, I felt that my presence and individualized guidance within each of the four corners groups made a difference that led to a better and deeper experience for students.  However, looking ahead, I still feel like this is an area that I could improve upon.  I am thinking that I could include some sort of speaking protocol than ensures each student's voice is heard.  Or perhaps it is a matter of a having an activity for each group to do that would reveal their knowledge level and areas for clarification.  I am excited to hear your thoughts how to best frame this important collaborative learning experience for students!
