This Framing Routing helps answer the Essential Question: What is the structure of the Sun? (solar interior, solar surface, and solar atmosphere)
TheFraming Routine is used in conjunction with a graphic organizer called a "Frame" to develop a thorough understanding of information associated with key topics and main ideas. The Frame helps students study essential information and focus on relationships between several main ideas and details. Students taught using Content Enhancement routines earned higher total test scores than did students taught using the lecture-discussion method.
Personally, I using the Frame Routine to figure out what I want to say and how I want to say it. It keeps my "Sage on the Stage" time limited to what fits onto 2-3 pages (about 30-40 minutes of directed class discussion). This product includes the completed frame, and the student frame blanked except for graphics already filled in.
As practice or after-class assessment review, I included a worksheet for students to define the term and fill-in-the-blanks. I would also recommend using a logic line-up activity on stellar evolution (https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Logic-LineUp-Stellar-Evolution-yellow-dwarf-red-giant-white-dwarf-nebula-3106642).
This Frame Routines are classroom tested to help students with the following
