    Guided Practice:

    Unit Notes- Students will listen and participate while the teacher is instructing in depth about the content. They will also fill in blanks and highlight essential information from their notes.

     

    Review Game- Based on the amount of time at the end of class (closure activity), TTW lead students in a review game. These games include but are not limited to: Heads Up Review (students sit in front of Smart Board with clue behind them, classmates give hints to help them guess the answer); Around the World (students go head to head to answer questions as quickly as possible, student that wins most matches wins); Challenge Review Game (students call on one another to come to the front of the room, students earn a ticket for each student they defeat by answering questions correctly); and Quizlet Live/ Kahoot Review Games (Chromebook based review games in which students compete in teams or individually to answer review questions correctly as quickly as possible).

     

    Independent Practice:

    Question of the Day-  This is a daily multiple-choice review question that is posted on Google Classroom. Students will answer the question of the day by selecting the choice they think is correct, and then the teacher will go over the correct answer.
