As an upcoming 2nd-year teacher I don’t really have lessons to modify yet, so I went with the corner-to-corner task on Pythagorean Thm. Students’ curiosity was spared because information was withheld (the length of the string and the length, width, and height of the classroom; the Pythagorean Thm formula, area formulae of squares and triangles), they were asked to notice and wonder (keeping track of their thoughts in a 60 second quick jot then think-pair-share), to estimate the length of the string sensibly. Since I teach PT in my grade 8 class in Alabama, I’m excited to try this lesson this year!
