Does Compass seem to appear in your nightmares? With the current changes in education, most teachers aren't in the party mood, but this monster is much easier to tame than you might think. Let's build a student-driven classroom with fun easy tools that anyone can use! This presentation includes tools and ideas which support Compass and CCSS.

Domain 3: Instruction

3b Questions and Discussion Techniques

  • Questions in a Hat
    • Students create their own questions on a particular topic/skill or as an Entrance/Exit strategy. All questions are placed in a hat along with a couple "teacher created ones". If you end up without any student questions you can always use the teacher created ones and the students never know the difference. This is a great way to model proper questioning.
  • Roll Point
    • Display the 12 Power Words and give MHS Roll Points for students asking each other questions with those words.

3c Engaging Students

  • Students Taking Charge
