## Reflection: Gradual Release Solving Multi-Step Word Problems Given a Part to Part Ratio - Section 5: Closing

This time period of the class lesson is critical.  Yes, we want students to grapple with complex questions.  Yes we want students to become independent critical thinkers.  Yes we want students to lean on prior knowledge.  However, ultimately we want students to learn the correct methods, prodcedures, and learn how to correctly solve complex task.  Students must be given the opportunity to have effective feedback on their thinking. They must be given the proper procedures to answer the task at hand.  It is important for students to know what mistakes they made, how to correct them, and what to do next time.  Students crave the right answer and this is the time in which I give it to them.  We went over the correct way to answer question 1.  Please see the exit ticket reflection to see how I incorporated the closing into a formative assessment.
