Reflection: Discourse and Questioning Teresa's Pizza (Fraction Decomposition) - Section 4: Share/Discuss/Analyze


Whenever a student can talk, they love the assignment.  I feel that is because students do not want to sit still and be quiet in a classroom.  That is boring.  When they can talk with their classmates, it makes fore a more interesting assignment.  As teachers, I feel that we must incorporate more discussion in our classrooms.  The students learn a lot from each other.  As a teacher, it is time for us to step back and let the students lead the discussion within the classrooms.

This was one of the favorite lessons for me this far.  It incorporated a lot of the math practices and I feel that it is a true Common Core lesson.  Not to mention, that the students enjoyed it!
