Foldables-One School's Success
Forest Middle School, located in Bedford County, Virginia, has adopted the use of Foldables as one of several teaching strategies. We have been using these 3D graphic organizers school-wide since August 2007. We believe this strategy has greatly enhanced student learning. Students create the Foldable, so they assume ownership of their work from the start. Foldables also allow students to complete the same activity yet be creative and different from their peers. Establishing ownership of their work produces better student learners. How do you think Foldables help your students?
