## Reflection: Relevance One Step at a Time - Section 4: Close

I try to close each lesson with a discussion around what we worked on and what issues we ran into. Usually the issues each group or student faces are pretty consistent so it allows students to see that everyone comes to roadblocks in problem solving. I also try to be very intentional about discussing why it’s important that we take the steps and take our time. Students at this age need continuous conversations around why math and problem solving are important and how being thorough helps us solve problems accurately.
