. . engage g Evaluate c:' Qleldö. Engage: In most instances you will want to begin with Engage. In this stage you want to create interest and generate curiosity in the topic of study; raise questions and elicit responses from students that will give you an idea of what they already know. This is also a good opportunity for you to identify misconceptions in students' understanding. During this stage students should be asking questions (Why did this happen? How can I find out?) Examples of engaging activities include the use of children's literature and discrepant events..

What can I find out about this? • Show interest in the topic. Explore • Perform and Investigation • Read Authentic Resources to Collect Information • Solve a Problem • Construct a Model • Encourages the students to work together without direct instruction from the teacher. • Observes and listens to the students as they interact. • Asks probing questions to redirect the students’ investigations when necessary. • Provides time for students to puzzle through problems. • Thinks freely but within the limits of the activity. • Tests predictions and hypotheses. • Forms new predictions and hypotheses. • Tries alternatives and discusses them with others. • Records observations and ideas. • Suspends judgment. Explain • Student Analysis & Explanation • Supporting Ideas with Evidence • Structured Questioning • Reading and Discussion • Teacher Explanation • Thinking Skill Activities: compare, classify, error analysis • Encourages the students to explain concepts and definitions in their own words. • Asks for justification (evidence) and clarification from students. • Formally provides definitions, explanations, and new labels. • Uses students’ previous experiences as basis for explaining concepts. • Explains possible solutions or answers to others. • Listens officially to others’ explanations. • Questions others’ explanations. • Listens to and tries to comprehend explanations the teacher offers. • Refers to previous activities. • Uses recorded observations in explanations. Extend • Problem Solving • Decision Making • Experimental Inquiry Think Skill Activities: compare, classify, apply • Expects the students to use formal labels, definitions, and explanations provided previously. • Encourages the students to apply or extend the concepts and skills in new situations. • Reminds the students to existing data and evidence and asks, What do you already know? Why do you think…? • Strategies from Explore apply here also. • Applies new labels, definitions, explanations, and skills in new, but similar situations. • Uses previous information to ask questions, propose solutions, make decisions, and design experiments. • Draws reasonable conclusions from evidence. • Records observations and explanations. • Checks for understandings among peers.

What evidence do you have? What do you know about x?
