## Reflection: Writing Across the Disciplines Write It Wednesday-Multiplying Integers - Section 2: Explore

The Write It Wednesday is my favorite strategy. This question was a strong one because it incorporated the concept of fractions into the problem involving integers. It gave me an opportunity to see how well they do using the algorithm and infusing the negative numbers into their work. The struggle with fractions is still present so we will have to continue to work on that concept.
