Reflection: Accountability Crazy Correlations - Section 2: Put it into Action


The most surprising thing about this part of the lesson was how poorly my students followed the directions for taking measurements.  I actually tried the directions with two other students during a free period to trouble-shoot any confusing sections so I thought I had them well-written, but every team had to make at least one correction because they hadn't done the measurement correctly.  My observation about this is that it isn't the directions per se that are the problem, it's that most of the students only read the headings and didn't bother with the specifics about how to make the measurement!  I'm not sure how to "fix" this for the future other than building in a stronger accountability and student ownership piece early in the year and continuing to reinforce these practices.
