The What
This strategy is a scaffold for interacting with experts so that students are prepared to make the most out of their data collection experience.

The What
This strategy is a scaffold for young students to interact with “the real world”, specifically it teaches students how to document their experiences while in the real world. Through this process the teacher will first model how to document useful data for the whole class, then gradually release the responsibilities over to students.

The Why
When students interact with “the real world” it is crucial that they be active learners. Therefore, they must have an ongoing outlet for their processing and learning during such experiences. Real world exploration documentation can later be used as a form of data during collective research projects.

Target Audience
Grades: K–3
Content areas: ELA focus, with cross-curricular connections in all other content areas

The What
This strategy marries two concepts—picture walks for young readers and Ignite talks for an audience. Students will be asked to collect 10 pictures related to their current topic of study to orally present to an audience. They will speak for 2–3 minutes, using only their images as prompts for an engaging presentation.

A picture walk is the simple act of reviewing a book’s pictures prior to reading it. A picture walk can spark interest in the book and help connect the visual cues to the story. Ignite talks are a series of events in which speakers have five minutes to talk on a subject. They are accompanied by 20 slides that show for 15 seconds each.

The Why
This strategy provides a foundation for developing oral presentation skills in young students. The ability to communicate effectively is a highly valued skill in many walks of life. By secondary grades, students are expected to give oral presentations, and so must be taught these skills early on.
