Questions to Consider

  • What is the learning purpose of this portion of the lesson? How do you know?

  • Ms. Brewer uses both words and actions to create a culture of learning in this portion of the lesson. How would you describe the culture? How do her words and actions create it?

  • How does Ms. Brewer use gentle scaffolds in order to help her students get ready to write on their own and with confidence? Do you suppose some of these are built over time?

When you've finished watching this video, go back to the Challenge to watch Sarah's Think Aloud.
