I was unable to attend the Midwest Conference in West Plains, MO, but I did have three of my team members who attended the conference, and were more than willing to fill me in on what they came away from the conference eager to use in their classrooms!
School districts across the USA give mandatory state assessments each year, whether we like it or not! Teachers are always looking for ways to incorporate daily review and master test taking strategies, instead of cramming the last few weeks prior to testing. I am excited to share with you, WBT has just that strategy, which of course will be highly motivating, engaging, and take your students to the next level in their learning! What is it called you ask? It is called.......Prove It!!
Prove It is a review strategy that students will play for 20 minutes each day! They will spend 10 minutes for math and 10 minutes for language arts. Teachers will provide students with sample test questions (multiple choice) and students will need to prove why the correct answer is correct, as well as, why the other answer choices are wrong. This strategy allows the teacher to guide instruction and correct any misconceptions that the students may have about the problems and answers. Students are also sharing answers within their groups, so peer leaders are being utilized as well.
What a great way to have fun learning and reviewing each and every day! For more information on Prove It! download FREE the eBook: Designing Your Whole Brain Teaching Model Classroom at http://www.wholebrainteaching.com/
