See Think Wonder routine
We use this routine to involve everybody in learning. We don’t wait for the teacher to ask us questions while the other students get bored. This way we have mixed ability groups where everybody helps everybody and we communicate with all our classmates.
Active learning classrooms are more engaging and more interesting. We can use visible thinking routines to help us work together and share our findings. This way students can construct meaning from what they are doing and not get it from the teacher.
Yes, it does require the use of technology but not always! For this routine, you can project the instructions on the white board and print and laminate the photos you want to work with. For instance you could use the topic vocabulary from class to find real and engaging photos to use with your students.
