Graphing Brainstorm

Here is another example of how to use a progressive brainstorm. This time I used to it introduce different graphs to the students.

Check out my past blog post "Progressive Brainstorm-Fractions" to learn more about how they work. This is a strategy to be used with EAL (English as an Additional Language) students in your class and as you can see, it can easily be used in maths classes also (extra bonus)!


  1. Hi Stephania, I did this last week with my 4/3 students and they loved it! It allowed me to hear the type of language they were using and which terms they knew. I took photos of the finished posters and showed them on the IWB so that we could all see each one as they were 'shared'. Thank you for this great idea. :-) Marianne

  2. That is a great idea to put the photos on the IWB! I will definitely do that next time. Thanks for sharing how you've used this wonderful idea and made it even better!
