Reflection: Conferencing The Organization of Living Things: Structure/Function Relationships - Section 4: Internet Search: Structure/Function Relationships


Middle school students can go through this activity very independently.  It can be tempting on days like this to grade a few papers, update your website, or enter some grades into the gradebook.  I challenge you, however, to use this day as a valuable opportunity to meet with groups of learners that need help in specific skills.  

Prior to this lesson, go through your formative assessments/data you have collected and determine a few groups of learners that need help with a particular skill.  While students work, pull those groups and reteach/provide instruction that can help increase their level of mastery.  

Seize these moments of student independence to help students further their learning!  What a great opportunity to truly utilize your formative assessments to adjust your teaching!
