Reflection: Advanced Students Fractions Review: Simplifying Fractions - Section 3: Partner Work


Before students begin their partner work, it may be helpful to have a brief discussion about what successful and respectful partner work looks like.  Otherwise, higher level students have a tendency to dominate the discussion and may hurt, whether intentionally or unintentionally,the confidence of the lower level student.

I will lead the discussion with the following questions:

If you've found that your partner has made a mistake, how will you let them know?

If you don't agree with your partner, how will you resolve the problem?

What if you finish your work before your partner?

Why is it important for each student to explain their steps?
