    I have several takeaways.

    1. I really like how the withholding information can pull a student into the problem and make them curious as to what they are trying to find out. The closest I have done to this is to use numberless word problems.

    2. This 4 step process really nurtures the students and gives them voice in the classroom.

    3. The process helps to create the culture of the classroom.

    4. These situations can give students “stick points” that can be referenced by the teacher, for example, “Do you remember when Mr. Pearce and Mr.Orr ate the candy?” and reference back to the concept that was explored.
