Reflection: Routines and Procedures Spaghetti Bridge Lab - Section 5: Whiteboard Discussion

In two of my three classes, students were engaged and interested in the data and participating in the discussion that we were having. In those classes my students really focused on how their own data related to everyone else's data. In my last class, my students were not as engaged and it made the whiteboard session less meaningful and a struggle to get students to participate especially since they did not follow directions leading into the whiteboard session.

Next whiteboard session, I will make sure to be clear about my expectations for students and how they will participate. If a class struggles with participation, I can give each student a chip and once they participate in the discussion they can turn their chip in for participation points.
