Recently I stumbled across Dave Stewart’s blog, Teaching the Core. Mr. Stewart is a Michigan high school teacher helping his kids and educators around the world understand the National Common Core State Standards. Periodically, Mr. Stewart examines the cross-content Literacy and English/Language Arts standards, writing about and showing us how this might all play out in a classroom.
Mr. Stewart’s latest post, “How to Get Students to Really Listen, Summarize/Paraphrase, and Respond to Peers,” contains two videos: the Three Tiers of Classroom Discussion, and How to Increase Listening and Paraphrasing in Classroom Discussions
