Structured Interaction: 2

Jose reviews the purpose for the activity where students will review questions from the story read the previous day. Notice how he highlights for students that he will be asking them to report out what their partner told them and not what they told their partner.

During the activity Jose has the students answer the questions in pairs and then rotate to get a chance to talk with multiple students in the class. Notice how the teacher monitors their responses by walking down the middle of the two lines so he can hear multiple students’ responses at the same time.

Classroom Reflection

In the first clip, why do you think Jose asks students to report out what was told to them by their partner? Why not have students report what they said?
