Reflection: Discourse and Questioning Integer Addition Lab - Section 2: Explore


I was able to put students together using their exit tickets. Students who had a rule they could articulate were grouped together. The students who struggled with the explanation were grouped so I could work with them through the lab.  I liked that strategy for grouping because it gave me the opportunity to work with students who needed my support while the students who didn't necessarily need me were able to work at their own pace.
