GC209 – Instructional Stoppers – Topic Paraphrasing
GC209-S2 – Topic Paraphrasing – Alexa or Instructor will guide the students in posting 3 to 5 topic questions on index cards for response, during instruction. Then, when directed, individually, with a partner or small group, students will be given five minutes to respond to each question, in their own words, on the front of the index card. Next, after instruction and discussion, students will be directed to add additional details, facts and examples on the back of the card. (Students can gain an average of a 35% increase in comprehension using paraphrasing – Schumaker, Denton and Deschler).
