TYWLS Bronx Social Studies teacher Michelle Nguyen wanted to target student engagement during note-taking. She found that her students were not using the notes they copied from the board after the lesson and realized that they needed to take ownership of their notes. Check out her adapted lessons slides that combine Sort Connect Reflect and Think Pair Share while watching a video. Additionally, watch her 8th graders use both routines in the video below.
