## Reflection: Modeling Review, Justification, and Critique - Section 2: Quiz: Critiquing and Justifying

This task is highly engaging for students, easy to implement, and it provides me with plenty useful information about what my students know and can explain about what they understand.  It is also an activity that pushes students toward the skills of critique, feedback, and attention to detail that I think are such keys to success in any discipline.

All of that is to say that I've realized that this work should have started a little earlier in the year, and it should happen more often in a 9th Grade Algebra course.  That's why I changed the end of this year's Linear Equation Project, which I reflected on a few weeks ago.

Moving forward, I want to continue to ask students to provide feedback to made-up solutions like these.  I also want to be intentional about making the transition to having students provide structured feedback on the work of their classmates.  It's a goal that I'll reflect upon more as the year continues - so I'll keep you posted!
