Reflection: Trust and Respect Multiples in a Minute - Section 2: Engaging Students with Inclusion


Looking back at this lesson I want to emphasize how important it is for students to feel comfortable with their own ability levels, and to feel included and accepted.  I use inclusion to help my students grow a community of trust and respect for one another. I believe that as they develop knowledge and understanding of each other's thinking, they become more comfortable with their own mistakes or challenges. 

With the question "What do you know about multiplication?"  Students are able to learn where their Learning Club members are in the process of learning basic multiplication facts.  If a student says they knew their facts, and could understand why they needed to use multiplication instead of repeated addition, the other students in the group would know this is a person they could go to for help. 

If a student shares that they don't know much about multiplication or are slower completing multiplication work, the others now know and can therefore better understand that these peers are still working on basic skills.  They learn to respect other student's learning and can help each other when needed.
