Reflection: Accountability Compute the Unit Rate Associated With a Ratio of a Fraction - Section 2: Bell Ringer


I will tell you, the biggest transition that the students are having into Common Core is Mathematical Practice 1.  My students are ready to revolt.  I know that the more the students draw on previous understanding, and unpack the questions to find starting points the better their stamina will grow.  Stamina is huge for lower level learners.  My students are in the habit of reading through a question, problem or task one time and if they do not "get it" right away, they immediately flock to me for help.  When I send them back and request that they try on their own first, as well as show evidence of thinking, they are collectively ready to blow a gasket. Their first instinct is to say, "I don't get it." This is without any work to show what they do not get.  Students are interpreting me asking for evidence of thinking before I help as me being lazy and mean.  I remind them of how much they already know, I stick to my guns and make them show me something.  It is hard for all of us, but I will not allow them to give up, and I will not give in.  This will pay off. Stick with it!
