So, last year I taught Algebra to students that had a tutor for every four students through the MSPinNYC2 Model. For the MARS FAL lessons, all I had to do was have the tutors grade the pre-assessment, cut out all of the manipulatives and hand them out at the appropriate times. Given the sheer number of items and volume of grading this one lesson can create, I was looking to streamline the lesson.
I first decided that students needed to review the feedback at the front of the classroom. The FAL today was Representing and Combining Transformations. I took the pre-assessment and created a feedback slide. One hour later, I realized that this was not a great use of time this year, but could be next year.
As I was going through the lesson, students were somewhat engaged (tough challenge with standing room only in a class of 34) with the feedback slide and were interested in the answers. We continued with the mini-lesson. Tomorrow, I will unleash the chart paper, glue and little pieces of paper. I look forward to it.
