Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Two-Way Table Teams - Section 1: Launch


Going back and reteaching something is often a frustrating decision to have to make. But, there are times when it is necessary. For example, during today's launch I was confused by the results that I was seeing, in the sense that it was not clear how well my students understood the concepts. I was expecting more dialogue and clearer explanations. Instead the room filled with puzzled faces and I sensed above all, a lack of confidence.

When we discussed Answer B from the Launch Prompt, my students were not up to the task of discussing the "correct question for the answer". As a result, I decided that the best course with this particular group of students would be to complete some more practice problems. When preparing for this unit, I had found a resource on practicing with two-way tables on the internet (See More table practice). Today, I used this resource to give my students additional practice before moving on to the Main Activity described in the next session of the lesson. 

In the end, the decision to change course resulted in this lesson taking two periods, instead of one. But, I was satisfied with the results and I think that my students made noticeable progress.
