Sage N Scribe

Post by RaeAnne » Mon Sep 13, 2010 11:39 am

I understand that Sage N Scribe works well in Math. Could someone help me move it across other content areas....specificially Junior High Social Studies, Comm Arts and Science. Is this structure intended only for use in Math or could it be used in other core areas? Thank you!

Great Question- for an awesome structure! Couple of ideas...Science- chemical formulas, forming bonds(ionic and covalent), Labs, genetics....Social Studies- sort for branches of government, steps in getting a law passed. Hope that helps in getting ideas flowing for you. Best wishes!

Sage-N-Scribe is a great 'guided practice' structure and works well for any type of mastery question, this could be knowledgebuilding or procedures/skills, let us know how you get on.

I just witnessed a fabulous use of Sage N Scribe in a high school science class. The teacher had them in pairs performing an experiment on density. The students alternated the steps of the experiment using Sage N Scribe. It was wonderful to listen as the students explained to each other how to perform the tasks necessary for success. This structure can be used in any Hands-on situation like this.
