## Reflection: Discourse and Questioning Adding and Subtracting Fractions Activity, Day 1 - Section 2: Mini Lesson

The class discussion before the group work was very important.  It was a chance to make sure students understood the diagram and the problem.  As it was read aloud I suggested that students highlight/underline the important information. When I asked questions, I  heard from several students and they had to explain/support their answer.  This gave other students the opportunity to hear the thought process of others.
