Reflection: Discourse and Questioning Divisibility Rule for 4 and 5 - Section 3: Mini Lesson


Most of the mini lesson was student centered.  I used the "turn and talk" strategy since I knew there would be a lot of students who wanted to share their ideas.  Groups had a few minutes to discuss each question, then I asked one student from each group to summarize their discussion for the class.  This promoted active listening and ownership of students' learning.  Students liked the idea of discovering the rules, so they were highly motivated during their discussions.
