Reflection: Diverse Entry Points Wondering About the Water (Day 1) - Section 2: Experience Learning


Allowing the opportunity to turn and talk to a partner at this point in the lesson is really important.  I want students to begin to ask and answer questions in order to better understand the text.  As you can see in my lesson notes, many students instantly had questions they were still wondering about, but a few of my students weren't sure about what questions they wanted to have answered.  By allowing students to turn and talk to their partners, the students have the opportunity to hear others' thinking, and then, with some conversation, start to understand the process of asking, and eventually answering, questions!
