Reflection: Intervention and Extension Photosynthesis - Section 3: Explore


Using technology is a good way to increase student engagement in a lesson, but it also allows for differentiation. I regularly have students complete online activities independently while I meet with students who are having difficulty understanding concepts.  I explain the online activity to the class and guide them through the first portion.  I then have them work independently, while I monitor their work to ensure that they understand what they are doing.  After I am sure the students can accomplish their work independently, I begin working with individuals or small groups of students to address misconceptions or to provide remediation for concepts that have not been mastered.  During this lesson, I work with individuals to review cellular respiration, a topic covered in a previous lesson.  I am also able to use this time to assist students who have been absent during previous lessons.
