    I have two questions:

    1. When it is that practice time, are they still in groups or do you do individual practice?

    2. I have been using guided notes for the times when I want to do some concept understanding, such as teach students about the Trig functions. These notes are problems and pictures and then they add the ideas and solving steps. I went to them when I had large number of students with IEP’s that had “notes to follow with teacher” in their plans and now give them to all students so that they can focus on the new concept vs writing/drawing. Do you recommend using those or do they create too much structure that would interrupt the flow of learning? If you don’t recommend them, how do you do direct teaching?
