Reflection: Staircase of Complexity "The Road Not Taken" #2 - Section 2: Analyze


Although this lesson is quite lengthy in presenting the basic information, once students practiced a few times, it does flow easier and they understand the routine.  It provides a method for them to organize their ideas; they truly become the experts. It encourages them to strive to use their critical thinking skills.  As they write their thoughts/interpretations on paper, it provides an organizer for future reference whereby the students do not forget about some of the minor details that are worth discussion in written responses.
