Reflection: Checks for Understanding Variables and Expressions - Section 4: Closure


When I find incorrect answers or misconceptions as I check the student's work for understanding, I identify the students that I need to work with in small group or one-on-one.  Even though I do this, I like to question and guide the students to the correct answer during the lesson.  This will give the students an opportunity to experience solving the problem correctly.  Therefore, when we meet in small group, they may have some understanding of what I'm talking about when we work together on the skill.
