Day 14 – Construction check

So… As I expected, students spent the past few days copying what I did on the board and had no idea what they were doing.  I set up a group task where each student in turns would create an assigned construction with the assistance of the others at the table (without notes) and then pass it on.  Out of the 8 different constructions, the most any table got correct was 2… and this was an honors class.  We had a reflection as a class to why something like this would happen and all of them realize it came down to practice.  They have to do more of it. Because I cannot expect students to buy their own compass, welcome to tomorrow’s lesson.
