Review Day 2
Lesson 2 of 4
Objective: Students will be able to identify and correct common errors and justify their reasoning using precise academic and geometry vocabulary.
I use the same structure as the lesson before, giving students sample work for three commonly missed problems from the third and fourth unit assessments. I ask students to identify the error(s) that were made, write out a correct solution, and explain either what was wrong in the given work or their correct solution makes sense. When groups finish, they call me over to assess the quality of their work and to give them feedback on their written explanations.
Like the review lesson that precedes this lesson, I make time to debrief the misconceptions, errors, understandings, and insights students made while working on the math hospitals. I call attention to the math concepts students used, making sure to name these concepts to aid and reinforce their justification.
After debriefing the math hospital, I ask groups of students to organize and focus their studying. I ask students to look through old quizzes and assessments from the remaining units of the semester so they can re-work the problems they found most difficult. To increase accountability and facilitate reflection, I require the Recorder/Reporter of the group to document each unit's big ideas and any lingering questions that remain, which we share out with the whole class.
Like the previous lesson, I ask students to make corrections to all unit 3 and 4 assessments, with explanations, just like the math hospital, so they can continue to learn from their mistakes and master the material.
