I teach at a high school in SLC, Utah. My class is very diverse in that we have multiple languages in the class, English is not the native language of 95% of my students, I have pretty close to 50/50 boy, girl ratio and the class is a good representation of students from the entire school ranging from grades 9-12. Our class period is 90 minutes every other day.
Things that went well:
The activity guide did a great job of helping students organize their thoughts with the 4 steps. It also gave students the chance to see that the process can work forwards and backwards.
Things to reflect on:
It took some brain storming for students to come up with things they are good at. Perhaps have them think about the prompt the previous day so they can talk with a friend or family member about it.
I was gone the 2nd half of the lesson where the were to find a classmate to solve a problem with, so this part of the activity was a little tricky because the students are new to the course and haven't built strong relationships yet to feel completely safe sharing what they are/are not good at.
