This lesson is the complete opposite of the way I have been teaching. As per school board directed instructions, I have always posted and discussed the learning goal prior to any lesson. This lesson makes me realize that I have been “robbing” my students of their curiosity path. This lesson also validates what I tell my students. I am always saying that they don’t need to use the method of solving that I show them. My direct teaching method, however, really doesn’t promote that…now wondering how many students are actually thinking “yeah right!”, when I tell them this. I love how we can highlight all the different methods that students may use to come up with the correct answer…maybe now students will believe me:)
