Come up to the board!

March 9, 2011

The featured activity from English Raven is used for English Language Learners but could be incorporated into other classrooms too. Students might create a collaborative story, write out and solve multi-step problems together, or simply share a collection of facts or questions from an upcoming unit.

I love the interactive nature of this simple technique and I am especially drawn to it because it is novel, it gets students out of their seats (so important for our active learners), and there are no wrong answers.

Use this activity for a quick warm-up, as a pre-writing activity, or as community-builder.
