Final category designations for “L”:

Brainstorm and list what you know in the first column.
Write questions or statements in the 2nd column about
what you think you will learn. Read the selection. Write
what you have learned in the 3rd column. Categorize what
you have learned.

 After learning about a topic, or reading a selection,
students work individually to collect their thoughts and then
in small groups in order to learn through social interaction.
The group shares its word and explains their reasons for
choosing it.
1.   Write down five words (on your own):




Reasons:

2. The three words we (groups of two or three) decided on
are:


Reasons:


3. The one word our group decided on is:

Students organize their thoughts and discover links between
concepts. Working in groups, students put ideas into context
       through their own and others’ points of view.


           Categories that the ideas fit into




                 Words/Ideas/Knowledge

 List, Inquire, Note and Know
Students use this activity to activate prior knowledge and maintain
focus on their studies. Students write what they know about a
topic, ask others about the topic, add new ideas to their list, and
then discuss the topic as a group. At this point students are
prepared to learn more about the topic.
1.    Show students a key term phrase or word that represents
      the topic.


2.    Have students list what they know about the term.


3.    Call on each student for a response. Write the response on
      the board or overhead.


4.    Have students ask each other about their responses. The
      teacher at this point is a facilitator. Students should try to
      determine why other students responded as they did.


5.    Hide the responses and have students turn their papers
      over.


6.    Have students write down everything they know about the
      topic now. Limit the time to one minute.
