Reflection: Discourse and Questioning Understanding Force Through Tug of War Day 1 - Section 2: Engage: Introducing the Game


Both the CCSS and the NGSS have a specific focus on student discourse and peer to peer learning.  In this situation, the students are asked to first come up with ideas with their own group.  They are then directed to share ether thinking with another team and then, in turn, listen to a team share their thinking.  This allows students to compare their learning with that of others and also allows them to hear other ideas and how they may be similar or different.
