Reflection: Gradual Release Introducing Angles - Section 1: Concept Development


As I was reading the section that I was going to have students read, I was monitoring my thoughts in order to distill what things students would have to make sense of in order to fully understand the reading. Then I created a handout with questions that would facilitate this process. I was really pleased with how this simple supplement enhanced the reading experience and helped students to get a lot more out of it than they would have just reading on their own. 

See the following video for a student work sample that typifies what the students and I got out of this exercise.
