Reflection: Adjustments to Practice When Life Gives You Lemons -- Make a Battery! - Section 4: Application


After doing this lesson it was clear to me that some students could use more help with thinking about what questions to ask. I think in the future I will help students who are having difficulty with this task. I had a lot of wonderful conversations as I worked the room, but few students were able to formulate 5 questions. I belive that making the link between observations and questions would go a long way towards helping students make the connection between the two.
