Clip 1:  General reflections

I reflect on the lesson and comment on trying out backwards-mapping.

“Sometimes for me, I don’t plan everything out…” I comment on “flow” and tying things together in a lesson.  Also:

  • How students built upon each other’s thinking. 
  • Her own questions about stopping for the break, and how exciting it is too see kids at the board during the break. 
  • Stopping group work to discuss particular student questions with the whole class.
  • The importance of moving backwards to move forward, the importance of “reviewing the journey,” a “collective reflection.”
