Reflection: Connection to Prior Knowledge Faulty Logic: Assumptions - Section 3: Conclusions


As observed a student's Assumption presentation, most students begin to understand the basic concept of Assumptions, but only superficially. At the second grade level, students require concrete examples to scaffold onto the abstract.  Students need much more practice and specific feedback for improvements to establish a deeper level of understanding. It is my hope to build experiences during my lessons that students can reference to as they mature and face challenges in their curriculum. Depth of knowledge can only be reached through scaffolding of many prior experiences.
