My big take away was that you do not need to show every possible representation each lesson. While you need to be aware of as many as possible to anticipate your students’ use of them, introducing more than one new one not done by another student can overwhelm students and reduce retention. Therefore in the future I will rank the representations in order from most important to least important for that day and if multiple are not used by students I will then pick the most important one or most connected one to share with the class.
I am still wondering how to reach students who do not engage. What if my tasks aren’t interesting enough? What if I am not interesting enough? How can I increase student involvement and engagement?
