Students Driving Instruction

Science students at Smithfield Middle School are teaching each other key concepts during class. Mrs. Youngblood and Mrs. Benton prepare a Padlet page for the students to use as their learning canvas. They students enter class, are paired up and given a Chromebook. Today's task is to find out what watershed is, why it's important, find a supporting visual, and a video that will explain watershed to their peers. The students are given 8-12 minutes to gather their information, which is then shared and explained by the students. The teacher's highlight key points and adds positive reinforcement to each group.  Here are a couple of the student created padlets, Period 7 and Period 8
