Big-ideas for small group work (literacy)

May 26, 2016 at 1:00 pm Leave a comment

Check out this attractive, teacher-friendly new book: 30 big-idea lessons for small groups: The teaching framework for ANY text and EVERY reader (2016 by Rafferty, Moreell and Rountos).

The stages of the big ideas totally connect with your inquiry process:

  1. Engaging
  2. Discussing
  3. Deep-See thinking
  4. Connecting

Chapter 3 is all about engagement and includes a description of classroom ideas (like ranking characters, vocabulary karaoke); chapter 6 is all about conferring big ideas across the day; chapter 7 includes forms / masters.

TDSB teachers may borrow this by reserving it in the catalogue – remember to login first! Or phone (416) 395-8289 or email professionallibrary@tdsb.on.ca
