Reflection: Pacing Comparing Siblings - Section 2: Setting a Purpose


As we worked through this unit, I tried to release control gradually as I saw students catch on. Sometimes this goes just as planned and sometimes I have to step back in when things begin to unravel. Although this unit could easily be cut in half, I was happy to have stretched it out for seven days. It allowed me to introduce pieces of ideas to students at a time, provide support during the first time we attempted something new, and then give them opportunity to try it again, but the second time on their own.
