## Reflection: High Expectations Predicting the Force - Section 3: Activity

Sometimes I find it really difficult to make sure that every student is doing independent, high quality thinking in science. We do lots of collaborative work and group work, but I want to make sure that students think independently, too. When I give directions for students to Work Independently, you hear me specifically telling students to think by themselves. I think this is something I could work on in the future so that students have some sort of system to know whether we are doing independent thinking, pair thinking, or group thinking. In this example of  Student Predictions, I can tell that this strategy worked well because I was able to call on students who do not always speak up and they had valuable things to add to the conversation!

High Expectations: Independent Thinking

# Predicting the Force

Unit 10: Forces and Motion: Balance
Lesson 6 of 6

## Big Idea: Understanding how objects move is important - but predicting how a force can change their movement has real-world applications.
