Make returning back to school fun and educational by incorporating the prompts of Depth and Complexity and Content Imperatives! This pack(part of my larger pack, bottom of page)
offers engaging activities to get your kids communicating, writing, reading, drawing, goal setting and thinking! Get your students to clearly understand your routines and procedures in the classroom and allow them to be a part of the process too!
Never used Depth and Complexity icons or frames in your classroom? No problem! None of your students are identified as GATE? Still not a problem! This packet is for all students and detailed directions are included for each page. I’ve used frames and the prompts of Depth and Complexity with all of my students (GATE or not), and they really enjoy it!
This bundle includes:
+ Create Your Dream Classroom Page: Give students a chance to be creative and present what makes them happy.
+ “My Perfect Classroom and Teacher” writing activity: Learn what your students really need and want out of a classroom and teacher.
+ Mix-Pair-Share Depth and Complexity Style Classbuilding Activity: A fun way to get students to know each other
+ Design Your Own Depth and Complexity T-Shirt: Students use icons to illustrate and write about who they are!
+ Depth and Complexity and Content Imperative Chart with a short summary of each icon (including new prompts) to use for each activity
+ Two Page “You’re Iconic” questionnaire to get to know your students better (school and family questions included)
+ 2 “My Goals” pages using the icons (1 page offers more room for writing)
+ “We Rule!” Activity: Give your students a rule or procedure from your classroom. Students will work in groups/pairs/independently to fill out the organizer and create their very own unique presentation about their rule/procedure, how it impacts the class, and the steps or process of following the rule or procedure correctly vs incorrectly. Train them right away to save you from headaches!!
+ 4 “Suggestions for Use” pages with detailed explanations of how I use these activities in the classroom as well as information on the cooperative learning structures included
