					           April Strategy of the Month -- Quick Writes

Quick writes are intended to engage student and make their thinking
visible.    They can occur anywhere in the learning process – before,
during, or after – and are meant to force students to stop and ponder
about what they have seen, read, discussed or discovered. They are
short, can be collected and “chunked,” used as discussion starters,
shared in a “think-pair-share,” or pasted onto a sheet to show the
evolution of thinking about a topic.
