Visible Learning. Goal- to get students to actually pay attention to, learn from, and interact with what is on the walls. Success= map of the thirteen colonies. Students were asked where they would want to live in the thirteen Colonies after studying three different maps (economic, climate, and topographic). Purpose: pre/post assessment. Why was it a success? Students constantly walked up the map to study it and see what peers wrote.

Learning to think before writing. Silent Socratic Circles. Students respond to provocative statements about a topic they have researched. This pushed students to move past the facts they learned to volley during the debates and into discussion. #socratic
