Reflection: Student Ownership Subtraction with Perimeter & Shapes - Section 3: Independent Work


I choose to do a lot of student-led inquiry in my classroom because I think it allows my students to own their part in the learning process. When they pose questions, create problems and question one another they engage in much more meaningful dialogue than just back and forth question and answer with me. I also think that by allowing students to create problems for their peers to solve they can better break apart questions because they have engaged in the thought process necessary to create them.
