Reflection: Diverse Entry Points Hiking the Canyon: A Teacher's Tale - Section 1: Review of Learning


Science journals are great to have, but students need to practice using them as reference tools. Students need to remember to get them out and practice searching them for the needed information. I remind them every time we put notes into them that we will use them later in discussions and in other lessons. Students with special needs now have a tool that will help them when trying to participate. During lessons, I encourage students to add drawings and their own notes so that they can remember more.
