Reflection: Student Ownership Bad Claim and Details - Section 1: Do Now: Error Terms Review


So, students were rather, er, slow to respond today. To be honest, it was a bit frustrating--made me feel like a Charlie Brown teacher (wah wah wah). Can't let it show, though. When students don't get it right, it's important to help them get it right. They're students; they're allowed to be learners and to not get it right--at least until the test.
