Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Day 1 - Salty Oceans and Fresh Water ... - Section 2: KLEWS Check-in and Question for the Day


The KLEWS chart helps me scaffold the difference between a claim ('learn' column on the KLEWS chart) and experience (observations) I can guide students to reflect on their comments to note what observations lead to their claims.

On the KLEWS chart I drew arrows to show what 'experiences' led to which 'learning'.

The KLEWS chart provides a vehicle for students to look metacognitively at their responses, helping them to identify observation statements from claim statements.
