From: Nancy Turner <turner@fieldcrest.k12.il.us> To: Teacher2Teacher Public Discussion Date: 1998062210:36:45 Subject: geometryideas for teaching proofs Something else you can do that works pretty well is to first start with a comic strip that has 5 or 6 frames. Cut them apart and give one set to each group. Ask them to put the frames in order. Then give them some proofs with one statement/reason for each step on index cards. Students work to put them in order just as they did for the comic strips. These statement/reason cards can read like a paragraph, as suggested already. This activity reinforces the idea that the order of statements is important (or may not matter).
