Reflection: Rigor Measure Me: Volume (Day 1) - Section 3: Independent Practice


You'll see that I try to include questions for students to respond to that include a student getting an answer wrong. This way, students have to "back track", and determine where in the steps the student went wrong. In order to do this, and analyze the process, my students need to understand and be able to verbalize the correct steps/process to solving a problem. This also increases motivation, because then my students feel like the experts, and are the "teacher". I love to promote peer tutoring inside my classroom, and even in vertical alignment with younger students too. This process empowers leadership qualities.
