## Reflection: Backwards Planning Preparing for Partner Presentations on Transformation of a Parent Function(Day 1 of 2) - Section 1: Modeling the End-Product against the Rubric

This is the first presentation of the year, and students are showing confusion when I pass out the rubric and the instructions for the presentations.  To help make the instructions more clear, I present to students the end in mind, by doing a presentation myself in front of the class.  I model for them my expectations for their presentations.  I use this method sometimes when students are having difficulty getting started, as an intervention to move the learners forward.  It makes the instructions more clear, and the students begin working toward those expectations.
