You can use the Wraparound strategy during remote learning to invite all students to share brief responses during a synchronous session, or asynchronously during a defined time period. This strategy provides an efficient way for all students in a class to share their ideas about a question, topic, or text, revealing common themes and ideas in students’ thinking. Wraparound activities can also be catalysts for synchronous and asynchronous discussions.
The following questions can help you plan to use the remote learning version of Wraparound:
- What collaborative digital tool(s) do I want to use to facilitate this activity?
- How am I going to deliver instructions to students about completing the activity?
- How often am I going to monitor the discussion?
- If teaching asynchronously, what is the defined time period I want to set for completing the activity?
