Reflection: Standards Alignment Deli Counter Dilemma - Section 4: Closure


One thing that is so important in teaching is using teachable moments. I had not actually planned on giving students the last problem before I began the lesson. During the lesson, I decided that it would be a great disservice to them to not include the open ended question. This question sparked another level of learning. Through the think-pair-share relationship, students were able to piggy back on each others' thinking, and extend their own response.
