Group Facilitation Checking for Understanding
After all group members have finished, the teacher should provide some time for large group discussion as information is viewed on a projection system to the whole class or session. It is important that each participating member’s response is read to the whole group in case the group needs clarification. The teacher will facilitate the group discussion by using specific questions that are designed to enhance imagery.
o What is being compared?
o Why is the comparison effective?
o What symbols are present?
o Why did the author choose these symbols?
