As individuals, use sticky notes to record different instructional content and activities you have coming up in the next month. As tables, strategize whether to use explicit instruction or inquiry. Justify your reasoning. Sort the sticky notes in a t-chart based on the most appropriate approach. How will you Communicate your Instruction?
