Reflection: Trust and Respect Double Trouble - Section 1: Set the Stage


I included this in my reflections because my students had a very good question as we were posting the data.  They asked if gender made any difference since men and women with the same number shoe size have different size feet and shoes.  This is a great example of the culture in my classroom, where students feel free to critique any work we're doing.  It also shows their depth of understanding as the recognize what the data is representing.  You can see in the data table that we added a column for gender and everyone came back up and posted by their original data.
