Anticipation Guides

Posted by Cherita Williams in Academics  |  Post a comment

Students bring with them a myriad of ideas, opinions, and misconceptions about a variety of topics. One way to gauge their thinking is with the use of anticipation guides. Employing this metacognitive strategy allows you to informally assess prior knowledge while setting a purpose for learning; students will want to see if they were right. Anticipation guides can be used in any discipline at the beginning of a unit or a single lesson. Follow up by asking students to write or explain to a partner how their thinking changed over the course of the unit or the class period. What new information caused them to think differently?

Examples:

Math

ELA

Social Studies

Science
