# Explore Group Work, Walks and more!

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.

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.

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.

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.

To Engage Them All: Grudgeball.. a Review Game Where Kids Attack!

Literacy Learner taught me how important it is to try to get to know each of my students on a personal level. By doing so I can see what they excel in and try to pull that into my lesson.

At the end of each hour I gave an exit quiz to asses what the students learned. I reviewed them later to determine their level of comprehension. My conclusion is that the students understood the general concept that I taught however some of their answers were wrong due to easily correctable mathematical errors such as negative signs.
