Rubric 8

What does it mean to elicit and build on student responses?
To elicit and to build on student responses means that the educator has to engage in learning
conversations with their students and expect a thoughtful response. To encourage the students to

share their thinking about that content. Anticipate how students will respond to tasks/activities, and plan
for how to incorporate those responses into the lesson to meet the learning goals. Ask good questions
(and at that right time) to generate the types of thinking and discussion that are central to the learning
goals. Listen carefully to student thinking and make a note of which ideas to bring to the forefront of
whole class discussions and the order to discuss those ideas relative to the learning goals.
What role does the teacher play in getting students to interact to extend and clarify literacy strategies?
A teacher should play the role of a facilitator in getting the students to extend and clarify literacy
