Reflection: Student Led Inquiry Ordering Numbers to Five - Section 2: Presentation of Lesson


For this lesson, I move to put students in charge of their learning as they discuss with each other how to fix the problem with our numbers.  Not all of my students were ready to do this.  Some are still struggling with raising their hand to talk and being respectful to their classmates.  I had to stop the discussion about counting order of the numbers because of arguments and students getting upset when another students said their answer was wrong. 

For a lesson such as this to work, the students need to be taught how to interact with each other respectfully.  Students are not going to take risks if they know that their classmates are going to laugh if their answer is wrong.  We did eventually get the numbers in order and had a chance to talk about the right way and the wrong way to participate in a class discussion/activity.  I think in the future I will set some guidelines for how to disagree with someone's answer respectfully.
