Reflection: Safety Evidence and Explanation of "This is Me in Grade 9" - Section 2: Modeling Evidence and Reasoning


  1. As I think through the experience of this discussion-based lesson, there are some important diagnostics to pull away.  The students seemed comfortable and safe enough to volunteer their ideas, which makes me very optimistic about the year ahead.  Also, they took notes well.

  2. This lesson went quickly, but the students contributed examples that I transcribed on the overhead projector (we use digital document cameras).  Some examples of what they wrote are in the previous section of this lesson (Modeling...).  

  3. I found it interesting that ALL students were able to get the notes down from the projector as they were shared with the class.  My question will be whether or not students will be able to transfer the skills that we were talking about to new situations and be able to find evidence of their own.  My supposition is that they will  not, on the whole, and we will be working on this aspect of argumentation for the majority of 1st quarter.
