## Reflection: ELL Students SSS, SAS, and ASA - Section 2: Mini-Lesson

This activity has worked very well for my English-language-learners and students with learning disabilities. It also helps kinesthetic learners retain the information. The flip-chart contains multiple representations of the postulates, i.e. description, name, diagram, abbreviation. Students used their charts to help them write proofs about congruent triangles in later lessons.
