## Reflection: Student Communication SAS-sy Triangles - Section 2: Triangle Proof Project

In today's class, I gave my students 5 minutes to plan their project and it didn't go so well.  I felt as though they used the time somewhat productively but I had no idea of what their plans were!

To address this, I created this half sheet, Who What Where Triangle Project, which I asked my students to complete the next class.  I found it very helpful to have, in written form, their exact plan for completing the project.  Moreover, I felt as though the entire class, when given a structured document like this, worked more productively and felt better about their next steps for the project.
