Activating Prior Knowledge

If you read this blog everyday, the following image (built by Reshan Richards) will push you to think back on an earlier post. As a teacher, in my classroom, I’m constantly concerned with finding tie-ins to former lessons, books, conversation . . . and this activity helps students to activate prior knowledge or build new knowledge.

Sometimes I forget that this blog is like a classroom, too. I should be using some of the same moves that I use in my classroom. But I didn’t forget today. If you’ve been reading faithfully, see if you can recall the post to which the image refers. And if you’re new to the blog today, or haven’t read it in a while, go digging in the recent archives. See what kinds of connections you can make.
