Step 2: Restate: The teacher will ask the students to give a description, explanation, or example in their own words.
Step 3: Show: The teacher will ask the students to draw and/or write a picture, symbol, or representation of the word.

Step 5: Refine and Reflect: The students will go back and discuss the words with a peer, while making the necessary changes to their prior knowledge.
