Reflection: Grappling with Complexity Metaphorically Speaking - Section 3: Independent Learning


As teachers you are well aware that we need to think on our feet and adapt lessons as we go to ensure students are "getting it". In this lesson I had to make some changes (increase student peer to peer sharing) to help those who were struggling with determining figurative meanings build deeper understanding. In this video I address some of the difficulties I saw students have and some adaptations I made to address each.
