Reflection: Relevance Creating An Instrument (Day 1 of Sound Assessment) - Section 3: Presenting Their Instruments


Students need to be prompted and guided in their use of new vocabulary terms.  The NGSS expects students to use content words within their writings and conversations.  I remind students of the words on the vocabulary wall and encourage them to use the words as they explain how their instrument works. This way the students use the words in context.
