Reflection: Discourse and Questioning STEM Lab: Designing a Feeder - Section 3: Think

 

One of the strategies that I have found really helpful when planning for the STEM lab is to think ahead of time about which parts I will guide the discourse for and which parts of the lesson the students can navigate on their own or with a partner. I feel like identifying the problem is really important because it gives purpose to the work, so we typically talk about it as a whole group. Listen as my students work on identifying the problem.
