I noticed lots of room for improvement including:
- better access to materials
- need for cleaning and organizing desks
- more coaching with regard to teamwork (I started the lesson with some coaching that moved the effort forward a bit)
- making a few more team work areas.
- lots of positive, encouraging talk
Tomorrow we'll continue the task, I'll analyze the effort more and really listen to students' words and effort.
This task is a struggle for the students, a good struggle, one that lends itself to lots of learning and teaching. Onward.
