Teacher's Reflection:

Overall, I found that the hardest part of the exam for the students was the short answer section. They did a great job internalizing the information and were able to explain it verbally, but when it came to flushing out their ideas in writing, they struggled. Therefore, this lesson made me take a step back and really hone in on how to develop complete and coherent answers.
