## Transcription

2 e. Students regroup to compare methods of solving, clarify understanding of problem, and determine if answers are reasonable. If answers do not make sense, students return to step c. f. Students work independently to record answer and reflect on how the problem was solved. 5) Students use thinking prompts to solve problems independently. Notes: Steps 1 and 2 may need to be repeated several times before students develop an understanding of how to use the thinking prompts. Teachers may choose to repeat Steps 1 and 2 when new math concepts are introduced, or they may have students start right at Step 3. Continuous reflection is a key element in this process. Teachers should reflect on the quality of their think-alouds, and teachers should help students evaluate the effectiveness of their problem-solving circles. Refer daily to the group norms. Revise as necessary.
