Reflection: Performance Tasks Bean Recipes - Section 3: Independent Practice


During the lesson, I spontaneously added "E" (the last problem), so that students could extend their learning even more. By connecting advice this empowers students. I wanted students to draw upon the outcomes of the lesson and the Independent Practice task, to put into words that someone would have to be careful in the kitchen about estimating and measuring ingredients in order to have a successful recipe. Students' answers were also then written down, thus incorporating writing across the disciplines.
