  9. NURTURING Rigor with Nurturing “Nurture denotes to supply with food, or to cause to grow. To nurture is to train up with a fostering care…”

  10. The Power of Our Questions

  11. page 4 – 6 QUESTIONS TO EXTEND THINKING Discuss with your new friend: In your PLC, when planning for learning, (how) do you identify questions to be used during the lesson that engage students in higher-order thinking?

  14. RIGOR Rigor with Nurturing “Engagement that uses the MIND before using the HANDS”

  18. Learning By DoingWhen you realize that people learn naturally from the life they experience every day, it won’t surprise you that the brain is set up to learn better with active, hands-on endeavors. Many students request less bookwork and more hands-on activities. Students are more willing to do bookwork if there is a project or activity as part of the lesson. Building models and displays, fieldtrips and fieldwork, hands-on experiments, and craft activities are all strategies that help students learn.

  19. STORYBOARD

  20. BLINDSEQUENCING

  21. The process of identifying and articulating similarities and differences among items. Comparing The process of grouping things into definable categories on the basis of their attributes. Classifying The process of identifying and articulating the underlying theme or general pattern in information. Creating Metaphors The process of identifying relationships between pairs of concepts (e.g., relationships between relationships). Creating Analogies What processes can students engage in to identify similarities and differences?

  22. page 9 Hey…how have you been able to use this structure to get your students to think?

  23. Use your BOUNCE Cardto ‘bounce’ your conversation up a notch to higher-order critical thinking page 7

  24. WHO AM I ? To develop deeper critical thinking skills, each student must develop refined questioning strategies.

  25. 4 – second partner Please bring your handout with you.

  33. COUNT OFF at Your Table

  34. Research Related to Teaching Reading Skills from Cognitive Science Premise: The meaning of a text is NOT contained in the words on the page. Instead, the reader constructs meaning by making what she thinks is a logical, sensible connection between the new information she reads and what she already knows about the topic. Read the paragraph on the next slide and work with your 4-second partner to fill in the missing words. ENJOY! (this is NOT a test)

  36. The questions that poultrymen face as they raise chickens from incubation to adult life are not easy to answer. Both farmers and merchants can become concerned when health problems such as coccidiosis arise any time after the egg stage to later life. Experts recommend that young chicks should have plenty of sunshine and nutritious food for healthy growth. Banties and geese should not share the same barnyard or even sleep in the same roost. They may be afraid of the dark. ~Adapted from Madeline Hunter
