## Reflection: Lesson Planning Introduction to Drawing Conclusions - Section 4: Collaborative Activity

I have taught this lesson several times, however, in light of trying to include rigor and student collaboration this was the first time I included the collaborative activity.  For a beginning of the year activity, I think it works well; however this lesson was taught closer to the middle of the year, and my students had some experience working together and reading.  I have noted in my personal reflections the next time I use this activity to allow my students to complete the entire activity with their partners after the initial example and to explain why they had to draw the conclusion.
