## Reflection: High Expectations Rounding to the Closest Ten Above One Thousand - Section 3: Independent Practice

When students struggle, I talk to them about how productive struggle is at the core of true learning.  I also make it clear that the fact that they are struggling is not a pass to "get off the hook" for thinking critically about the task at hand.  Case in point is the question I ask at the end of this lesson, which is, I think, both tricky and valid.  Regardless of what skill they chose to practice today, they are all responsible for thinking about why this matters in real life.
