## Reflection: Gradual Release What's the Point Part 2 - Section 2: Hands on Practice

During the hands on part of the lesson, I notice several students had some concept of what they were doing. However, they were applying it wrong.  Because I need my students to see their own mistakes, I try to gradually guide them into using their own thinking.  I don't have a customary way of doing this. I just do what works best for my students.  The video gives better understanding to my support techniques.
