Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Lucky Luggage Tags: An International Challenge - Section 5: Independent Practice


This is a lesson with many layers and it's essential that as soon as possible after lessons such as this I sit down and write a few notes to myself about what worked, what didn't, and what I'd like to change in how I present it.  Then I go over the exit tickets and take notes on student strengths and misconceptions and put them into groups for the next lesson.  I may not actually physically separate them out, but instead sometimes keep the list on my clipboard so I know who I'm enriching and who needs extra support.  

When I talk about changes, it is frequently something very subtle about how I worded a question.  It is helpful that when my students don't understand something, they persist in explaining to me what they are thinking.  This allows me to fine tune what I'm doing.  Every class is different and even if I have taught a lesson several times, it always changes. I have changed and learned more, and the students before me change as well, all with different needs.

Big Idea: Telling time is not enough. Students need to understand and apply strategies to solve elapsed time situations that are real world. This knowledge is essential in creating a deep understanding of using clocks as a tool to measure the passing of time.
