Reflection: Rules and Consequences Proportional Reasoning Review - Remember Hollywood Squares? - Section 2: Explore


As I mentioned in my strategy video, being this is early in the year and the first time I have played this game, I did have to make an example of one student this morning that decided she would chit chat during group discussion time rather than work with her group, sharing answers and understanding the concept.  I subsequently called on her (to make an example) and she got to the board and had no clue.  Though I felt badly, it is very important that students understand that eventhough it is a game - they are accountable for doing the work and being an integral part of their team.  The remainder of the class I did not have any issues with kids doing their part :)


I have included a short snippet of conversation that took place during another one of my blocks.  Students are talking and working together to try and arrive at a solution together, which is awesome :)
