Students previously began presenting problems from their vacation homework. See Winter Recess Homework Review, Day 1. This lesson will be a continuation of the group presentations.
Before students begin presenting, I will remind them of how they should present and what's expected of them. I will give them a few minutes to regroup and organize themselves before we start.
Previously I instructed students that each problem they present should take about 4 minutes. Students generally have trouble adhering to a time limit, so it is important to remind them to be organized and clear with the information they are presenting.
Students should review the roles they have, know how to explain their work, prepare questions to ask the class, and anticipate questions that may be asked of them.
Scribe - will show the work on the board
Spokesperson - will explain the work
Elaborator - will pose and answer questions from the class
Summarizer - will summarize key ideas
Students will continue the presentations of their assigned problems. See Winter Recess Homework. If I feel a group has presented a problem incorrectly or lacks pertinent information, I will intervene and make suggestions or ask the class for suggestions.
Students will be given an index card to use as their exit ticket. I will post the following prompts on the board for students to respond to.
