## Reflection: Checks for Understanding Solving Problems using Fractions! - Section 2: Modeling

Student Response!

In this particular video I ask a student volunteer to explain what she knew.  Asking questions allow me to see if a student fully understands the purpose of this lesson.  It also provides precise decision-making points: do I need to further scaffold this learner? or can I plan for something in the future?  However, periodic checks are a quick way to clarify misconceptions that are getting in the way of students' understanding.
