## Reflection: Lesson Planning Memorial Day Memories - Section 1: Warm Up

Most administrators look for some element of technology in each lesson. I did this in the warm up today. My project doesn't work well at all, and sometimes things are very difficult for students, and even myself to see. This most definitely hurts my instruction. I would go ahead and make the questions from this site into a simple Power Point lesson instead, if you have a difficult time seeing the questions like I did here. Be sure to have students write their answer instead of A, B, C, or D here; I switched about half-way through because I realized that I wasn't giving students really any feedback; immediate feedback is best. Ideally, we should have used the SMARTBoard to write what fraction the situation represented. One reason why I don't spend a lot of time here is because I noticed a few students telling me that they "got it", when I noticed them writing their answer after others; this method isn't without its faults when you have dishonesty in the classroom.
