Process Cards

PDF includes cards for teacher to cut out and organize into a deck. Each deck should include one formative process, along with six different types of information. Decks are then distributed to small groups of students with instructions to discuss and arrange the six types of information by whatever the process card says. So, for example, “rank these cards by which format involves the least amount of research up to the one which involves the most.” Afterwards, each group should state their ranking to the full class and explain why they decided to order things the way they did.
