Reflection: Gradual Release Amazing Amphibians - Section 5: Class Discussion/Wrap Up


When completing a specific task for the first time, in this case, the Venn Diagram, I prefer for my students to complete it on their own, but then, I find it extremely useful to review it whole group. This allows my students the opportunity to see how it should have been completed and gives them a chance to self correct. This scaffolding helps them better understand how to use this specific organizer.

  Completing an assignment whole group allows for self correction.
