Grade 6 students at Park Manor PS shared their thinking during a Literature Circle discussion. The teacher places a digital recording device at each table to record the discussion, which she can use later for student feedback and instructional next steps. The use of a digital tool to record student talk helps keep the students on task and respectful to each other. As well, it provides valuable assessment evidence for the teacher. A simple strategy yet high yield instructional practice.
