Reflection: Learning Communities Multiply Me: Volume (Day 2) - Section 1: Warm-up


Organizing students to work with peers increases participation level. In a small group, the potential to be embarrassed is not only lessened, the dynamic also spurs thinking. I have different grouping styles that I rotate depending on the intended outcome. For this lesson, I chose to use homogenous groups, and I provide a lot of scaffolding using clues. Developing students in the making of their own problems using scenarios they suggest would be the next step.
