Day 53: Unit Circle Foldable

20141113_142827

Tried something new today.  We’ve been using foldables periodically this year and I had one set up for the first quadrant unit circle.  Together, we developed, discussed and connected key ideas around the unit circle with radians.  I then handed out the foldable and my students worked in groups to complete the pieces of the foldable.  This gave me a chance to walk around to the different groups, check in about their understanding and make the experience more personalized.  I could clear up questions they had, focus and add detail to their responses and identify misconceptions.  I’m impressed with how the kids dove into the activity.  What have you tried lately to give kids more voice and autonomy in the classroom?
