KVS: Teaching in the Moment

Observing students in process is important - identify what they need in the moment - and decide how to teach it - teach students by:
  • naming what they are doing
  • offering advice to help move the group or individuals forward by - asking critical questions,using multiple ways of knowing, talking with or back to texts
  • demonstrating new inquiry (CL) practices - reading critically,engaging in democratic dialogs,choosing language that supports collaborative Inquiry, introducing other CLs

Introducing other CLs
  • counternarratives to stories told - in newspapers, magazines, essays, books, etc...
  • Talking POints (organize your thoughts before speaking)
  • Note taking -what's important?
  • Committees - we don't get stuff done alone - form a committee to take it forward to action
