Reflection: Discourse and Questioning Show Your Stuff Day 1 of 2 - Section 1: Project Day


This student story board shows one team's thinking about this assignment and also demonstrates the value of a storyboard/outline.  This team spent several minutes talking about what to do, but not actually making any progress because they couldn't agree on how to organize their project.  I suggested they "storyboard" by folding a paper into 8 sections and writing one key idea or topic in each.  Once they got the bare bones written they discussed what else to add (like examples for each) then started creating their actual project.  This team took turns writing the sections, but some teams split the work differently with one person writing and the other looking up information in their notes.  It was encouraging to see the various ways my students tackled this project and just walking around listening to them as they discussed what to put in gave me additional insight about their understanding.  This story board shows a bit of that discussion with the erasures in the first square.  These students didn't agree initially on what constituted a rational number, with one student insisting there had to be a variable in both the numerator and denominator.  The other student pulled out some of her handouts from earlier lessons and showed her partner examples that refuted his definition and helped them rewrite that square.
