Basically, all it requires is four signs for your classroom:
Hang one in each corner. I leave these up all year so that I can use this strategy anytime the opportunity presents itself.
What you do is present students with an idea. Recently, we were prepping to read a story about segregation, so I presented them with the statement: “Fair is not always equal.”
Then, have them travel to the corner that best represents their level of agreement with the statement… Cold = you totally disagree; Cool = somewhat disagree; Warm = somewhat agree; Hot = you totally agree.
Ever used this strategy? How did it work for you? I’d love to hear about it!!
