day 110: students reflect on their own behavior and give feedback to each other

Reflecting on One’s Own Behavior as a Learner: Mia asks students to reflect on their own behavior as learners as well as that of the class. She uses a scale: “Four: it was great for me; three, I was able to work with it; two, I need some people to change; or one, I have some serious problems with what happened.” She invites her students to find their group and look at their fingers, and then talk with each other about the problems they faced in supporting each others’ learning.

CONSIDER:
How do you help students understand and reflect on individual and whole group behavior as learners?

These videos are discussed in the Inside Mathematics guide "Taking Responsibility for Learning, Mia Buljan, 2nd grade," one of 10 practice-focused guides on building classroom climates for mathematical learning.

The videos document key mathematical practices observed in teacher Mia Buljan's 2nd grade classroom over the course of a school year. In the guide (available as a PDF or an iBook download), you can explore extended narratives and questions for reflection around "taking responsibility for learning."
