🍎 PD – Running A Group Investigation Lesson

🔓 This is an unlocked sample! Byrdseed.TV opens for new memberships on December 1st, 2020. Join the wait list to get more information.

The group investigation model of instruction is perfect for increasing student interest, motivation, and participation. It’s a wonderful tool for introducing a new unit.

  1. You’ll begin by provoking students curiosity with an interesting set of visual prompts.
  2. You collect your students’ questions
  3. Then put your students into groups with assigned roles.
  4. You will provide them with resources to find answers to their own questions.
  5. Then you’ll bring your class back together, and have a group discussion about which questions they were able to answer and which remain unanswered.

Teachers love Byrdseed.TV!

"I just subscribed to Byrdseed.TV and am loving it -- though it is kind of scary addictive in a binge-watching kind of way (that, by the way, is a compliment)."  ~  Elizabeth from Florida

"The ideas presented are clear and straight-forward and my students have responded positively to every lesson idea I’ve used. It’s my favorite go-to resource."  ~  Melissa in North Carolina

"I absolutely LOVE all of the ideas on your site. I am using Byrdseed TV to differentiate activities for my clustered students to work on when the rest of the class is doing something they’ve already mastered."  ~  Wendy in Washington
