Reflection: ELL Students Fall - Section 5: Elaborate


Some of my students were confused about how to make sure their illustration showed their understanding of the pattern created by the change in the earth's tilt. So, I just created the model on the board, and went back over the North and South Poles. I think the big thing to remember in the first grade is to not allow students to struggle, because they are unsure about how to design their work. Don't get me wrong some productive struggle is good, but I don't want to allow my students to get to the frustration level. I created a video showing my model: differentiation.
