…real change, lasting change, change that impacts the students who need it the most, happens at the classroom level. The true power of making a difference for a student lies in the hands of the teacher. The teacher is always the key.
Students reflect our perspective of them…Over the course of the year, my students slowly responded to my belief that they were capable of learning…they learned to believe in themselves, in part because I believed in them.

The Bottom Line “In order to effectively increase the rigor in your classroom, it is essential to incorporate elements of student motivation and engagement.” “Higher-order thinking thrives on interaction. When students bounce ideas off of each other, the exchange generates more ideas in a nonthreatening setting.”
Bounce Cards Use the Bounce Cards to discuss how movement and learning are connected?
Take a Minute… Take a minute to look at a strategy in your ring that we haven’t talked about yet. Read about it, take some notes on your sheet and be prepared to share out about that strategy.
Explain it to your neighbor Take the TPT you just studied and explain it with a partner. Between the two of you generate questions to clarify what you don’t understand. (In reality your pair would join another and do the same). Coming back together you would clarify any misunderstandings as a whole group.
Study-Tell-Help-Check Study your Notes, 1st Partner tells all you can remember. 2nd partner helps. Check your notes.
Whip around or pass In order, whip around and tell us which strategy you are going to use first in your classroom and why. If someone takes your answer or you can’t think of one…you may “pass”.
