- 1 takeaway from the article
- 2 takeaways from your classroom observations
Cougar Consultant Circle Take #2
- Post-it notes are used as “talking chips.” Teachers turn them in each time they contribute to the conversation.
- Need to set norms/expectations for talking chips (ie. has to be an original comment or agree/disagree and extend, not simply I agree)
- Possible questions to answer if conversation lags:
- Of those takeaways, what can you immediately implement in your classroom to help your students?
- What did your experiences as a student in class this morning remind you about being a learner?
- Brain network questions: What part of the lesson “stuck with you” the most? What part of your brain was activated during that part of the lesson? What was your relationship with the information during that part of the lesson (ie. listening, viewing, manipulating, discussing, etc.)? How is this relevant to how you teach?
Closure/Ticket Out the Door
Write a postcard to yourself as a teacher (with your name on it).
What are 3 things you want to remember as a teacher from what you experienced today as a student?
Turn these in to APs.
