Mini-Lessons Cycle 1: Meaningful Mini-Lessons
Day 2: Lessons they can’t help but remember
Challenge: Shake things up in an effort to get your students more engaged in your mini-lesson. While you’re still going to be the one speaking through the connecting and teaching parts of your lesson, think about ways you can creatively involve your students while you teach so that the lesson sticks.
What did you do out of the ordinary today?
What was your students’ response when they had a greater involvement or sense of engagement in today’s mini-lesson?
What makes you think your students will remember today’s lesson more than others you’ve taught in the past?
