Share Out

Share Out

Share is the part of the lesson where students consolidate their learning. Consolidation is the process of transferring knowledge and skills from short term memory to long term memory. For consolidation to take place students must make connections between that day’s learning, previous learning and forecasting where learning goes next (Levine, 2002).

  • Make connections to previous learning and independent practice or work outside of the classroom
  • Share thinking work or strategies
  • Analyze work for mistakes
  • Evaluating work against a rubric or exemplar
  • Accountable talk
  • Celebrate perseverance, grit and content learning
  • Reinforcing transfer, agency and independence
  • Restating lesson objective or teaching point
  • Asking questions
  • Check-in on goal setting
  • Reflecting on next steps, future lesson
  • Facilitating (minimize teacher talk) accountable talk using stems, prompts, questions
  • Fostering connections to previous learning, independent practice, next steps

  • Asking questions of and providing feedback to their peers
  • Actively listens to peers
  • Engaging in discourse (i.e. turn and talk, partner share, whole class conversation)
  • Sharing their work and learning from others
  • Explains steps, obstacles, outcomes and thinking
  • Evaluating their own work against a rubric or exemplar
  • Reflecting on their learning (i.e. recording their thoughts on post-its, journal entry, discourse)
  • Self assess to set new goals
  • Planning for the work of the next day, based on the work of today (i.e. setting goals for book clubs)

Mel Levine

Dr. Mel Levine is a professor of pediatrics at the University of North Carolina Medical School and the director of the university’s Clinical Center for the Study of Development and Learning. In his book, A Mind at a Time, Levine presents the neuroscience of how brains function and focuses on how different “minds” learn differently. The science is presented thoroughly, not making for a quick read, but also includes practical tips for teachers and parents to work to bypass obstacles for children to be successful at home and in the classroom.
