Evaluating a Fish bowl Activity in a Literature Circle



Evaluating a Fish bowl Activity in a Literature Circle


Product Description

The Fishbowl activity is mostly useful during literature circles or in a novel study. Quite literally, the group in the center is being watched by the rest of the class, while they are discussing elements of fiction. This activity is a very important tool in order to teach students how group discussions should run, what is to be said, and how it is to be said. Many times the leader of the discussion doesn’t know how to prompt members to elaborate upon their contributions. This will certainly help.

In addition, it is often difficult for a teacher to evaluate these discussions, which is the reason I have created this package. It is easy to use and you can merely check boxes to quickly assess each member of the groups.

This package contains:
• An explanation of The Fishbowl Activity
• How to run a Fishbowl Activity (within the realm of a literature circle)
• Why such an activity is important
• Evaluation sheets one can use to easily evaluate the discussions and roles of students

It’s teaching made easy!

Free Open-Ended Questions for Accountable Math Talk

Looking for questions to support students during math talk? 
Questioning is one of the most powerful instructional strategies we can use in the classroom! In fact, NCTM’s Principles to Actions (2014) states that effective teachers use “purposeful questions to assess and advance students’ reasoning and sense-making about important mathematical ideas and relationships” (p. 35). However, creating an environment where students are able to respond to questions and effectively use math talk during a classroom discussion can be challenging. Many of our students do not know how to discuss their mathematical ideas and strategies using key math vocabulary and concepts. As teachers, we play an important role as we help students identify their thinking processes and build new knowledge by connecting to ideas and concepts that they already understand. Choosing the right questions is an essential part of this process. Read more about using questions and building effective math talk practices here.

Practice identifying the attributes of what, quantity, and color, while working on beginning writing skills and sentences structure.

When cutting out the alphabet pieces if you use a dab of glue on the back, your letter tiles will not slip while going through the laminator.
