Reflection: Pacing Electronics Tear Down - Section 3: Closure


This lesson ended with a bit of a "well, that's it," kind of a feeling.  I had my students look at the work that other groups had done, but I missed an opportunity for deeper learning through peer to peer interaction.

If I were to do this lesson again, I would have form into heterogeneous groups and present their findings to their peers.  I would expect students to use accountable talk stems (I disagree because..., Can you tell more about..., Did you consider....) to respond to presentations from their peers, and record either new questions they formed, or something they noticed components had in common.
