## Reflection: Student Communication Proving It - Section 2: Geometry Properties Vocab

Before jumping into this lesson, I first handed out a Unit Outline to help them keep organized and share this information with their families.  I also purposefully put a picture in the right corner so it's easy for students to identify this sheet as their unit outline, and if possible, I copy this outline on colored paper.

Also, since this outline provides all of the homework assignments for the unit, it is easy for me to modify each assignment when needed for my special education students.  I usually put a star next to the unit name for any modified unit outlines as to differentiate this outline in a subtle way.  Here is an example of this modified outline.

To extend this unit, I also provide my students with a challenge homework assignment which can be worked on throughout the unit and I usually make due the day of the unit test.  This assignment provides students with an extra challenge and focuses on word problems and applied questions that involve more complex topics in geometry and algebra.
