The Problem Solving and Communication Activity Series Plan and Reflect
Plan and Reflect
Once students are familiar with several problemsolving strategies, they need to think about how to be good planners. Beginning problemsolvers often get bogged down in one familiar strategy, and don't know how to stop and ask, "is this working?" And if it's not working, they're not sure what to go back to.
The Plan and Reflect activities help students organize what they know and practice stepping back and reflecting on what they're doing and why.
