Lab Frame

Used when doing labs/experiments in class to help guide students through the experiment and thinking about the connection to the class content(PDF. Download).

  • To help students select details from a video, film or oral presentation
  • To teach note-making skills

Why and How would I use it?

I would hand out the Labs think sheets prior to watching a video or film. I would show them how a filled out sheet would look like and explain what am I want them to do and what I am looking for. I would answer they might have and then I would instruct my students to process the information by listening, asking questions, picturing int information and summarizing the information.

I like this strategy because it helps students take notes and helps them organize their thoughts. It also provides a great references sheet for studying.
