Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Karate vs. Camouflage - Section 4: Partner Work


I have a very diverse class. So, for the part of the lesson where the students record their observations from listening to me read, I write the answer in a highlighter for several students. Then they trace the answer: modified work.. I actually just copied what one of my other students wrote, because it was a proficient student work example and was created by another child. I am trying to teach the class to build upon what each other already know, and share their information. So, I am modeling this as we copy the other child's original idea.
