Reflection: Grappling with Complexity "Framing" the Main Idea: Interactive Notebook Right Side Activity - Section 2: Filling the Frame: Finding the Picture


I had a picture ready to put up on the Smartboard to practice with the students before I was going to let them work on their own but then I decided against it.  I kind of felt that the students would benefit more from struggling with the task.  Having to erase and erase and erase after evaluating their work, causes students to create connections that can be used at a later time.  Allowing the students to share as they were ready while the others continued working gave students the freedom to change or strengthen their answers with no one knowing they did it.  I know when I look at them they'll all have very good main ideas and supporting details but this is practice- this is what I expect- this is building success!!
