Lesson Reflection

What went well?

 

Scholars were successful because they had spent time learning and finding the problem and solution in various texts.  

What would you change?

 

Make sure scholars are focused on the problem and resolution only. 

What needs explanation?

 

Make sure scholars understand that the problem is what goes wrong, the resolution is how the problem is fixed.
