Lesson Plan for Activity 3
Summary of Activity 3: Final Reflection
Prospective teachers engage in a group discussion/debriefing of the project (which may include presentations of their lesson plans and/or problem posing activities), followed by an individual written reflection (to be completed in class as a quick write or out of class as a homework assignment).
The launch provides time for prospective teachers to reflect before the whole class discussion begins. Post a set of prompts and provide time for prospective teachers to reflect individually and then in pairs/small groups. Alternatively, conduct a gallery walk.
Facilitate a whole class discussion to help prospective teachers reflect on activities 1 and 2. An expanded list of possible questions for whole class discussion is available in the full lesson plan. Some questions might include: What was it like to think about the community in mathematical terms? As you participated in this project, what surprised you?As you were planning your lesson, what challenges did you face?
