This is so useful! I'll be sharing these ideas in my TBT, and with my students.
This was a great webinar. I learned so much and can't wait to utilize some of these strategies in my classroom. I am planning on using Graffiti Gist Protocol or Digging Deeper tomorrow

Thank you for the great information!
Great activities and suggestions! Especially liked the 'Digging Deeper' discussion activity, which is a variation on the 'Gallery Walk'. Getting students reading, thinking, and moving is a powerful means of engaging more reticent or unfocused learners.
Thought the ideas were really good. And I have pages and pages of instructional ideas. I like that students can just give the "gist". Almost like a text. I did have some technical issues.
I enjoyed that the webinar even provided more resouces to use. Also, the name of another good teacher was given - Abby Futrell. I didn't like that I had technical issues. I had to watch two times.
I loved the idea of the student histogram. Particularly, that it went beyond the “do you know about this”and asked the students to share what they did know. Thanks for all of the ideas and resources.
