Learning Log 5

Chapter 5 in Disciplinary Literacy covers what it means to infiltrate collaborative learning in each of the disciplines and what that might look like. The book states that collaborative learning also starts with teachers working with one another to develop new ideas by their previous lessons and brainstorming what worked and what did not.

Collaborative learning in the classroom can take a lot of different shapes, partner sharing, group discussions, Socratic Seminars, or Project Based Learning. A critical component before starting to start collaborative learning is making sure the students have a grasp on academic vocabulary. LIke we are learning in class right now, students must be sufficient in their Tier 2 words for their corresponding grade.
