How do silent signals foster metacognitive strategies in learners of any age?

silent signals foster metacognitive strategies in learners by allowing students to be aware of their own thoughts and learning style 

How does Ms. Noonan use silent signals to formatively assess student learning?

Ms. Noonan is formatively assessing her student learning through the use of the signals "I agree", "I disagree", "I need more clarification". Throghout the lesson Ms. Noonan can gather instant data on her stduents understanding. 

What aspects of classroom culture are developed through silent signals?

silent signals are a good way to allow students to quietly encourage thier peers without interrupting other students thought process. This leads to a positive and understanding classroom environment

1. How do Silent signals foster metacognitive strategies in learners of any age:  Uisng silent signals allows students to be aware about their learning  and their thoughts. 

2. How does Ms. Noonan use silent signals to formatively asses learning? Ms Noonan uses silent signals to formatively asses learning by using the  agree/disagree/unsure or needing clarification. It's a school wide system that all students and staff are made aware of. 

3.  What aspects of classroom culture are developed through silent signals" I like the signal where the students can give other students hints to speak in a full sentence. I like that they don't need to wait for the teacher to give them this promtp.

  1. How do silent signals foster metacognitive strategies in learners of any age?

By utilizing silent signals, it allows students of any age to be aware of their own thoughts.

2. How does Ms. Noonan use silent signals to formatively assess student learning?

Ms. Noonan uses silent signals as a way to formatively assess student learning by using signals such as "I agree", "I disagree", "I need more clarification". If all students are using the silent signals, she is able to quickly assess and gaeg where students are at in their learning.

3. What aspects of classroom culture are developed through silent signals?

One signal that I think really promotes classroom culture was the signal to encourage your classmates to keep going when they are struggling. This allows for a postivie classroom environment that promotes student growth and increases student confidence.
