Reflection: Checks for Understanding There is a Glacier Melting in the Classroom! - Section 3: Our Final Discussion and Assignment


My students did a fine job with collecting data and noting times and observations. I have seen good progress in their ability to be able to concisely talk about what they see, using precise language now. It is the middle of the school year and this progress is notably what I had hoped for. Student samples show their abilities and show me what I need to adjust and improve on as well.
