Interactions

The focus of today’s session will be based around Interactions in the classroom and attempting to get 90% engagement, data collection and qualitative observations of desired behaviors

Goal: Create a resource bank with strategies for high level of engagement and interaction to begin being used on Monday.

Open a new word document/title a blank page Resource Bank. You will individually be creating a resource bank for great strategies for high engagement, interaction, and opportunities for everyone in the class to practice their language development.  Please be sure to write legibly because this resource may be shared with others (wink, wink).

With a colleague, watch the following videos to that we can understand what is meant by interaction.  

Takes notes about  what interaction means and identify a few strategies that you might want to take into your classroom. Write them down in your resource bank.  If you need to do further research online to dive deeper into the strategy. This is a good time to do so.
