## Reflection: Connection to Prior Knowledge Missing or Extra Information - Section 2: Task

After I have worked directly with the students on a skill, I like to use a task.  A task gives the students more practice on the skill while working in groups.  Allowing the students to work in groups gives the students different perspectives from their classmates.  Students can learn from each other.  As the students work on a task, I am the facilitator, walking around monitoring and questioning the students to lead them to the solution.
