Reflection: Student Communication Creating a Compost Pile - Section 2: Engage


My students did not have prior knowledge of creating a compost pile. The video permitted students to gain knowledge about a composite pile since they did not have prior knowledge of that type of soil. After the video, the students were excited about the learning connection that they had made. We were able to have a  rich discussion afterwards due to the knowledge that they had gain.

It is essential to build background knowledge first, so students can have a better understand of the content. Therefore, they can feel successful because they can add to the dialogue.
