## Reflection: Accountability Solving Multi Step Equations: Comparing Processes (Day 2 of 4) - Section 3: Stations

This lesson’s use of station provide another great opportunity to differentiate, meeting with students who showed gaps on their exit cards. The student directed “journeys” presented a great opportunity to pull a small group of students. The small groups were composed of varying ability as some students were pulled in need of remediation due to absences. I find that student investment is reinforced when they know I use exit cards to determine group for extra support. There isn’t a negative connotation around it, rather they know I am monitoring their progress and will make support available when needed.

It is important to consider accountability during student led to ensure mastery. Push all students to check their answers by substituting in their answer, students want to skip this part but skipping this step builds poor habits and increases chance of error.
