Briefing and Debriefing of a Language Arts Lesson

Hawai‘i Public Charter School
Grade level: 1

This example shows parts of a class briefing, teacher center, and class debriefing for a language arts lesson. In the briefing, the teacher introduces the center activities and asks students to share about their class values. She then works with a small group on a joint product focused on the sequence of events. In the debriefing, the teacher and students discuss their learning at the centers and the values they observed.
