    Managing lessons:
    mini lesson or directions (notes, demonstration, thinking activity, what the goals of the lesson are), applying work (project, using information, research, labs), final discussion (summary, using information learned in a new way, whole class use and discussion of knowledge, reflection).
    Hints and Management Ideasfor getting students to discuss
    Assign Partners - Be sure to assign discussion partners rather than just saying "Turn to a partner and talk it over." When you don't assign partners, students frequently turn to the most popular student and leave the other person out.
    Change Partners - Switch the discussion partners frequently. With students seated in teams, they can pair with the person beside them for one discussion and the person across from them for the next discussion.
    ...
    Randomly Select Students - During the sharing stage at the end, call on students randomly. You can do this by having a jar of popsicle sticks that have student names or numbers on them. (One number for each student in the class, according to their number on your roster.) Draw out a popsicle stick and ask that person to tell what their PARTNER said. The first time you do this, expect them to be quite shocked! Most kids don't listen well, and all they know is what they said! If you keep using this strategy, they will learn to listen to their partner.
    Questioning - Think-Pair-Share can be used for a single question or a series of questions. You might use it one time at the beginning of class to say "What do you know about ?" or at the end of class to say "What have you learned today?"
    Management Ideas
    Use a discussion.
    Show basics - editing a page, creating a link, table of contents...
    ...
    page, etc. We build slowly on skills until they are ready to fly.
    Check history to see who is doing the bulk of the work.
    Require some information to be on individual pages, some on team pages, and some on content pages.

    Tech ways to handle case studies: Use the discussion feature for asking questions and eliciting responses (you get more involvement through writing than verbal discussions) and have them create a product to show their knowledge.
