Reflection: Student Self-Assessment Converting Weight using Metric System - Section 2: Practice


In order to teach students how to be critical thinkers I think it is important to teach them how to reason through things.  They need to be able to analyze their thought process. 

For example, in this portion of the lesson I gave the students a copy of the correct answers and asked them to share where they struggled when completing the conversions.  If students are able to determine where they messed up they are able to think through how to improve their practice.  They are also able to see that making a mistake is okay.  Being a critical thinker isn’t rocket science.  It just requires that students actually use their brain to think. 

  It's not rocket science.
