The Three Stages of the Understand Level*
Students restate information in their own words to show they understand the information.
In this example, students identify what led up to the revolution, framing the context for the revolt:
|What?||So What?||Now What?|
|What led to the colonists’ revolt against Britain?||Why was this revolt important?||What effect has the American Rev had on the U.S. and Britain?|
|One reason is increasing numbers of immigrants from other nations.||It led to the foundation and formation of the United States.||The U.S. and Britain have since been very strong allies.|
How did this strategy work for you?
