Reflection: Real World Applications Design Solutions - Engage, Explore - Section 2: Explore


Throughout this activity I'm moving throughout the room and sitting in (usually on the perimeter) of groups to listen to their conversations.  They are amazingly on task!  My primary role is to prompt them when their thinking flags, whether it is in their drawing or in their casual, on-topic conversations with their peers.  Again, I encourage them to speak in complete, clear sentences and to use specific descriptions and comments.
