RE: RECALL Strategies
Fri Jun 5, 2015 23:16

I really like the CAR and CROWD techniques. I plan to use these in the future with my K-2 grade students. CAR gives students the opportunity to interact with books without pressure. They are free to be as involved as they like. CROWD helps students practice recall and make connections. Crowd also helps teachers gauge reading comprehension. As a teacher, I would start with CAR and transition into CROWD, depending on the text and student ability.

To answer your question, I believe a teacher should move on to the next lesson once students have either mastered their current lesson or are proficient enough to move on. Learning builds on itself and therefore it is important for teachers to not move on until students show at least proficiency.

        Megan, I also loved your idea of having a central theme! In Dr. Deal's class we were able to take a central theme and develop many different lesson plans around it. We were able to utilize a lot of... more

        I really like your idea about having a central theme, then doing lots of different things with that. I still think it is difficult as a teacher to decide when to move on to a new skill, or even when... more
