Dia de los Muertos Schema

When creating schema charts with your class, make sure that every student realizes their thinking is valuable. First, give students a strong model. Accept all of their ideas and write them on post-it notes to add to the chart. As new learning occurs, move ideas that were incorrect to the misconceptions box. As we confirm our learning I remove it from the post it and add it permanently to our chart along with the students name (this is my own adaptation, I also added a questions section for things we still want to learn) For more information about schema charts, read Debbie Miller's Reading with Meaning and Teaching With Intention.
