This week educators at RISE Academy for Adult Achievement will be working on using evidenced-based discussion and writing strategies in their classroom. On Tuesday, teachers used Jigsaw Socratic Seminar to engage with various articles on 21st century learning. On Thursday, teachers used the same text to explore Using Quotes Effectively. Participants then worked in small groups to prepare to use these instructional strategies in their classes during the current semester. Resources for the session can be found below.
