hybrid learning y chart blog thumb_Introducing a new learning concept with students may feel like a daunting task - with the uncertainty of the coming weeks top-of-mind. In the year that keeps us on our toes, we can still rely on those teaching strategies that are tried-and-true for classroom instruction, but quickly adapt them for distance learning when we have the right tools. The Y-Chart is one of them.

The concept of a Y-Chart is likely not new to you, but thinking of ideas on how to make this group discussion concept work in a hybrid or distance learning environment, might be. We've again partnered with Cathy Henry from Free Word Work and The Curriculum Corner to put together some tips and activities that you can use, especially for distance learning.

A Y-Chart of Looks Like, Feels Like, and Sounds Like is a great way to get a conversation started before beginning a unit of study. Exploring what your students already know about a concept not only helps you cater your teaching to their existing knowledge, but sharing with the group promotes cooperation and a shared goal.  

Using posters, handouts, cutout shapes, and even stickers, you'll learn tips for creating Y-Chart activities whether students are in your classroom or from their homes. Complete with a Y-Chart template and virtual classroom download supports, we know you'll appreciate the global usefulness of this tried-and-true classroom tool!
