## Reflection: Writing Across the Disciplines Investigating Basic Types of Physics Graphs - Section 4: Graph Matching and Transformations

At the end of the day, I copy a sample of student responses as examples for 9th-grade physical science students to use in their parallel introductory unit. I started doing this teacher move because students became more engaged and made more careful annotations when they started sharing their work with underclassmen as sample work or user guides.
