Reflection: Flexibility Creating a Concept Wall - Section 3: Flexibility


As far as flexibility, one student asked if we could put a question on the wall, so that if we read about it we can remember that we want to answer that question. These are the types of conversations you will have to decide on. Do questions fit on your wall? In the case of our Columbus wall I decided that we could hang the questions on the outside of the frame. This way we know it is tied to our reading and is something we want to learn, but it is not quite ready for the wall. 

When we start a new concept wall, questions might fit into its framework better. You will know how you want the wall to be structured and then you will guide your students through its creation. It is okay to go with the flow of the class and the needs that need to be met for them to develop deeper understandings.
