## Reflection: Flexibility Writing Linear Equations (Day 1 of 2) - Section 3: Guided Notes + Partner Practice

A large percentage of my students enter my class reading and writing below grade level. This deficit can make this unit extremely difficult, since a large portion of the content relies on written comprehension and analysis. So that we are able to focus more on the mechanics behind each function, problems with simple text are introduced first.  The thinking and writing component of today's lesson is crucial;  simply identifying these two numbers is not enough.  By the end of today's class I need my students to understand the implications of the slope and y-intercept in relation to a scenario as well as be able to fluently explain the meaning in mathematical terms. I will devalue the numerical computation piece of this lesson by providing students with some of the values for the data table and stressing that the written responses are the most important piece of today's lesson. (I have received  papers back that have completed tables, but no written responses for any of the sub-questions).
