Wading into modeling activities can be scary for teachers concerned about how much time they have to reach benchmark learning goals. For a full-blown modeling scenario; for example, high schoolers might need several days to complete their presentations, and the pedagogical skills required to coach through “rich problems” are vastly different from I do – we do – you do.
I propose we compile a site of short, simple lesson replacements that introduce discovery learning. In this way, teachers and students can start getting used to figuring out new concepts on their own: from something they already “got” to “get” something new, in seamless transfer.
Please contribute to this new blog for collecting and sharing: “Got it -> Get it Tranfers.”
