Reflection: Discourse and Questioning Constructing a House Plan Day 2 - Section 4: Student Practice


Often times, we expect students to revise their work in writing by making changes, starting over, and completing multiple drafts. This practice needs to be an important part of math time as well. Although, many students struggle with going back and making changes after they've invested so much time, energy, and pride into their work.

Whenever students go back to make revisions to their work (widening hallways, creating common walls between rooms, correcting dimensions, etc.), I quickly celebrate these students for being willing to make changes to their work. Soon, most students in the class are willing to make revisions and will often look for opportunities to revise on their own.
