The Simple Four Student Learning Instructional Activities and Strategies
PLAN Planning means that students are engaging the topic or assignment and deciding what they want to know about the topic and /or information they need for their assignment.

Students will ask themselves such questions as:
What do I need to do?
What’s my assignment? What’s my research topic?
What are the questions I need/want to answer?
What information do I need to answer my question? What information do I need for my research topic?
What will the finished project look like?
 
  • Plan strategies and follow an inquiry-based process in seeking knowledge in curricular subjects and make the real-world connection for using this process in one’s personal life. (1.1.1) (3.a)
  • Identify and define authentic problems and significant questions for investigation. (4.a)
  • Use prior and background knowledge to develop and refine a range of questions to frame the search for new understanding. (1.1.2) (1.1.3)
  • Read widely and fluently to make connections with self, the world, and previous reading. (4.1.2)

ACT As students ACT on their plan, they must prioritize their list of possible sources of information, find those resources, engage the resources to extract the relevant information and then evaluate the information for credibility, authority, and relationship to the topic or assignment.

 

Students will ask themselves such questions as :

  • Where can I find the information I need to answer my question or for my research topic?
  • Which information source(s) will be the most helpful in answering my question? Which information source(s) will be the most helpful for my research topic?
  • What search strategy will work best for each information source (e.g., book, online encyclopedia, web site)?
  • Now that I’ve found some information what do I do with it?
  • How do I decide what I need from everything I’ve found?

 

  • Locate, organize, analyze, evaluate, synthesize, and ethically use information from a variety of sources and media. (3.b) (1.2.3)
  • Demonstrate teamwork by working productively with others, either individually or in project teams, to produce original works or solve problems. (3.2.3) (2.d)
  • Show social responsibility by participating actively with others in learning situations and by contributing questions and ideas during group discussions. (3.2.2)

 

  • Use proofreading skills to edit small-group or whole-class writing with teacher support. (K-4.5)
  • Use strategies to revise small group or whole class writing with teacher support. (K-4.6)

ORGANIZE: When students ORGANIZE their information, they are making decisions about that information and their assignment or research topic. During this phase, students will write their report, create their multimedia presentation, complete the assignment, and submit their work. During this phase students must demonstrate what they learned.

Students will ask themselves such questions as:

  • How can I put my information together to show that I answered my question?
  • How can I show what I learned?
  • How do I document all the information sources I used?
  • Use technology and other information tools to organize and display knowledge and understanding in ways that others can view, use, and assess. (3.1.4)
  • Respond to literature and creative expressions of ideas in various formats and genres. (4.1.3)
  • Use creative and artistic formats to create original works as a means of group expression or to express personal learning. (4.1.8) (1.b)
  • Create products that apply to authentic, real-world contexts. (3.3.4) 
  • Use pictures, letters, or words to tell a story from beginning to end. (K-4.3)
  • Use proofreading skills to edit small-group or whole-class writing with teacher support. (K-4.5)
