Adjectives for the Word Graveyard: The Case Against "Good" and "Bad"

Try using this video as a lesson starter, without giving context.  It makes a solid point when choosing and using words in writing. Aligns well to CCSS Anchor Standard 3: Apply knowledge of language to understand how language functions in different contexts, to make effective choices for meaning or style, and to comprehend more fully when reading or listening.

 

To further push rigor, ask students to critique the video (and some of the comments) for improvement in clarity, and even point of view.

 

It's alarming that such a simple video about word choice would illicit such impassioned dialog.  Ahhh the power of words!

Explicit strategy instruction is at the core of good comprehension instruction. Teachers should help students to understand why a strategy is useful, how it is used, and when it is appropriate.

 

Teachers should help students to understand why a strategy is useful, how it is used, and when it is appropriate. Teacher demonstration and modeling are critical factors for success, and student discussion following strategy instruction is also helpful.

What's ideal when it comes to collaboration in our classrooms?

Connie Wise's curator insight, January 3, 2013 10:34 AM

As teachers, we'd love to see this right out the gate, but this sort of sophisticated teamwork takes scaffolding. It won't just happen by placing students together with a piece of provocative text or an engaging task.


So how do we begin this scaffolded journey? Once we've shared with students the task or assessment they are challenged to complete with their group, here's some suggested steps for supporting students in deep and meaningful collaboration:

 

Establish Group Agreements

Teach Them How to Listen

Teach Them the Art of Asking Good Questions

Teach Then How to Negotiate

Model What We Expect

Group Brain Power
