"Summarize" in the Classroom
The main teaching occurs during the 'summarize' component of the LESRA Framework. Convene the group of students to make mathematical connections and to explain their solutions, selecting a range and variety of solutions. Use probing questions to press students to articulate and reveal their thinking, so that you can guide them through misconceptions and to the big mathematical ideas that are the intended focus of the task.
