8 What did the students do? 1.The were asked to write an interview question on a sticky note and place the it in a large circle drawn on the board. Students were told that they should be writing questions that produce more than a simpleyes or no answer. 2.At this point in the year the students were familiar with the breakout circle drawn on the board. They knew that their goal was to have their question break out of the circle. 1.The were asked to write an interview question on a sticky note and place the it in a large circle drawn on the board.

9 Breakout Circle This method has been adapted and used in many different ways. This method has been adapted and used in many different ways. Regardless of the topic, the goal is to have your idea break out of the circle. Regardless of the topic, the goal is to have your idea break out of the circle. The students decide what ideas break out by giving a thumbs up or thumbs down. They can also choose a sideways thumb which means the idea almost broke out and the student is on the right track.

10 What happened next? The teacher reviewed each question the students created and the class decided if they broke out of the circle or not. The teacher reviewed each question the students created and the class decided if they broke out of the circle or not.

11 Where could the lesson have gone from there? Original Lesson Write a report about the partner using the information gained from the interview.

Switch reports with a partner not in the original partnership peer edit using a checklist to check for grammatical errors.

12 Ideas for change… Students create a PowerPoint about their partner using the information gained in the interview. The PowerPoint could be a simple one slide to get the students used to using the program. Students could also create a seven-slide PowerPoint with an introduction slide, five question/answer slides, and a conclusion slide. The students could insert clipart and create a product to present to the class. 12

13 Ideas for change continued…. Students still write the report, but insteadStudents still write the report, but instead of just presenting to the class, have them use video cameras and become newscasters. The 21 st century learner expects more and as teachers we need to provide more opportunities.The 21 st century learner expects more and as teachers we need to provide more opportunities.
