If you are interested in learning more about the WSQ strategy, I recommend that you check out Flipping with Kirch: The Ups and Downs from Inside my Flipped Classroom.
The last post described a bit about class time structure. This post in this series will delve a little deeper into what I called the “WSQ Chat”. Check out my slide deck from “Winning WSQ Chats” (embedded below) for a visual journey, or scroll past the slide show for a quick overview of my 5 favorite types of WSQ chats.
There are 27 specific WSQ chat ideas in my book (bit.ly/FWKirchBook) and I'm sure more I can think of since it's been published. Don't get locked in a box! Students need and like variety to keep them engaged in purposeful discussion activities that will solidify and deepen their understanding of the material. I’d love to hear how you use a “WSQ Chat” in your classroom - comment below and share!
