## Reflection: Organizational Systems Introduction to Angles - Section 2: Introduction to New Material

I rely on anchor charts of many of my math lessons.  I display these anchor charts throughout the classroom during the unit.  I use anchor charts for a variety of reasons: (1) They provide an easy reference for students, (2) they help me  present information in an organized and coherent manner,  (3) they allow me to easily reference past lessons and their connection to current lessons, and (4) they provide an easy and useful way to introduce mathematical vocabulary.

During this lesson, we build an anchor chart together so that students can learn and internalize information about angles and make use of what they already know to challenge themselves. (MP5) I find that students use and reference the anchor charts regularly when the information displayed is relevant and helpful for their learning.
