Activating Prior Knowledge: 6

Notice how Karin uses the microphone to make this activity engaging for students. She also has them respond to questions using a thumbs up/thumbs down response. This way, she can gauge student understanding before moving on to the next portion of the lesson.

Karin revisits the objectives for the day and conducts a debrief by having selected students share out something they learned from the reading.

Classroom Reflection

Did you notice how Karin had the students respond in complete sentences during the debrief of the lesson? How might this be an effective practice for English learner students in your classroom?
