Reflection: Modeling Drawing Conclusions with CER - Section 2: Explain


I chose to divide this lesson into small portions for the students and to provide them with instructions for each part.  One of the reasons I do this is to provide a framework for the lesson, so students who were absent have a better understanding of what we completed in class.  Formatting the activity in this manner also helps the students in class follow along and allows a space for them to take notes as we review the material.

As we go through the lesson, I provide the students with various opportunities to practice the material in a whole group and small group setting.  Providing the students with multiple opportunities to review this concept helps to strengthen their understanding and it provides them with multiple opportunities to ask questions.
