Reflection: High Quality Task Figurative Language with Casey at Bat - Section 1: Cue Set


Instead of doing a Rally Robin here, I had students stand up, pair up and share.  I did this because they needed to move!  Scholars stood up and pushed in chairs.  Then, they paired up by finding a friend with whom they wished to work.  Finally, the sat down and shared their metaphors.  I gave them 2 minutes to share and I circulated to ensure that scholars were engaged and to provide support to all learners.
