Reflection: Accountability Classification of Quadrilaterals - Section 1: Student Exploration

Asking each group to use a different colored marker was a great way to encourage accountability. During this activity and at the end, I was able to monitor the involvement of every group of students. However, it was often difficult to measure the involvement of each student within the colored groups.

During this conference, Getting all Group Members Involved, I asked all group members to get a green marker to increase each student's access to learning. After this conference, I then asked all students in the class to get a marker!
