Reflection: Adjustments to Practice From Cells to Biosphere: Anchoring Biological Terms (Day 1 of 2) - Section 3: The Classroom Flow: Small Group Work


When I am planning a student project work session, I always debate with myself about the best way to structure the classroom time for maximum effect:  is it better if I give studentsa list of tasks to do in a specific order or should I allow individuals to choose how and when they complete each task?  How much monitoring should I be doing and what should that look like?  

Please see my short video outlining an alternative approach to this project and why I chose this specific strategy instead.
