Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Comparing Regional Temperatures - Day 2 - Section 2: Explore


 This student was able to verbally explain the similarities and differences he saw between the temperatures in Springfield, Illinois and San Diego, CA despite the fact that in a few places he made errors (he had the high temperature surpass the low).  He noticed this himself and was able to articulate why that was a mistake and I think this was much more powerful than me catching it and telling him to redo the graph!
