During group work I was able to walk around the classroom and work with students individually. This gave me an opportunity to see where students were still struggling and what I should go over before the exit quiz.
During the lesson I asked for student feedback multiple times. I asked students to help me with the next step or to tell me what they got. The students seemed very comfortable and confident and everyone was sharing their ideas.
One reading that changed me the most this semester was Discourse: Simple Moves That Work by Rawding and Wills. This reading taught me how to get my students to start talking about math and how to bring writing into a math classroom.

Another reading that helped with my shift was "Talking and Writing in the Classroom" by Fello and Paquette. The idea that stood out most to me from this reading was the math journal. Students can reflect upon their growth as a mathematician, where they still struggle, and even keep tests or assignments they are proud of.
