Reflection: Organizational Systems Wave Quiz Prep - Section 2: Make a Foldable for Wave Properties and Behaviors


Most students are positive about making the foldables and filling them out. I watch them and the like the act of flipping through the different tabs and making decisions on what should go where and how much detail belongs in the various sections. However, there are always a few students who find this activity elementary and they have a tendency to not fill them out as fully as others. In the future I think I will be more explicit on what should be in the foldables for diagrams or maybe give some students alternatives to creating this. Maybe next time I will let them make a wave summary poster instead.
