    The thing that jumped out at me the most is when you said that you would deliver the explicit instruction at the end, to make sure that the ones that were still lost with their thinking would eventually be made right. So the lecture, i.e. direct instruction, comes after students have been struggling with the problem for a while, and are probably more receptive to hearing what the answer is.

    I’m still wondering the best way to create a productive struggle. I know 3 act math is great, but I also know that if I now how to structure it, producting struggle could be gained from simply writting a couple equation on the board. I’m also wondering how or if these ideas could be incorporated into blended or flipped instruction.
