Reflection: Modeling Pick Two: More Comparing and Contrasting - Section 2: Ready! Set! Go!: Charting Similarities and Differences


You would think I would learn!!  This is the first year my building has implemented Kagan strategies and I LOVE them, but they require much modeling!!!  With the Simultaneous Round Robin, I had modeled with one group, but I should have had each group go one round and watch and then ask for questions or checked for understanding.  One of these days I will learn that when first introducing a new way of doing things I will let every group work through it before I let them do it for real!!
