Module 6: Helping Students Elaborate on New Content, Summarize and Represent Their Learning, and Reflect on Their Learning

This module continues our exploration of strategies for helping students interact with new knowledge. In the previous two modules we addressed strategies for identifying critical-input experiences, previewing new content, presenting new content in small chunks, organizing students into small groups, and facilitating interaction about new content. In this module we address asking questions that require students to elaborate on new knowledge, having students write out their conclusions and represent their learning nonlinguistically, and having students reflect on their learning.

Reflecting on Your Current Beliefs and Practices

Before examining the strategies in this module, take some time to examine your current beliefs and practices by answering the following questions:

  1. How do you use questions to help your students process new information, skills, and procedures?
