  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.
