Day 34 – What Does It Take?

Physics 11 – Kinematics is culminating and things aren’t going super smooth.  Group work and classroom work is going well, but when individual work rolls along, things are falling apart.

Next week all students have the option to re-test their graphing learning objective.  To re-test, all they have to do is pick up a review sheet and complete it.  The students that did pick one up were encouraged to stick around for 5 minutes and go over the first question with me.  Every one of them hit a A-Ha! moment when doing this.  That’s what it takes.  A willingness to try and a willingness to give 10 minutes of time.  Despite the option to re-test, very few students picked up the worksheet, maybe 10 out of 80 students.  I’m not sure what the rest of the students are expecting to happen.
