Reflection: Routines and Procedures Drill 2: We Justify Everything! - Section 3: Guided Practice


As I moved around today, I noticed that the kids had to be reminded quite a bit about this new procedure. It'll take some time for them to remember the steps and to consistently show me their work. I would gently show the students that I couldn't see where they found the information to support their choice and guide them back to the problems that weren't justified. By the second or third week of school, I expect that they can do this without reminders. A few will still struggle and may need a checklist on their desk by that point. I also make a point to show great examples of justification when we review tests and quizzes. After the first time, I see kids get really organized with their justification and move to color coding and lots of thoughtful responses when sifting through the answer choices.
