Reflection: Modeling Native American Research Project: Ready, Set, Research, Take Two! (Lesson 4 of 8) - Section 2: Review of Vocabulary and Note-Taking Skills


I often adjust instruction based on what I see the day before.  Yesterday, I noticed that many students were not copying the spelling of their content vocabulary incorrectly from their research materials.  I modeled for them how to copy one syllable, or word part at a time.  We also discussed how it was important to be sure to have accurate information in our notes, and if our spelling is incorrect we may think it is a different word.  The students also identified that there would be less editing to do if they copied carefully from their research materials.
