Check for Understanding: Have a student demonstrate the steps before the guided practice. Ask a student to repeat the directions and the steps needed to proceed. I will then ask the students if there are any questions on how to find the diameter, radius, and circumference of a circle. Guided Practice: First, I will put the students into partners and have them take turns blowing 2 bubbles each onto the construction paper. After they return to their seats, show the students how to find the diameter, radius and circumference for their first bubble. After each set of partners has successfully found the radius, diameter and circumference for their circle, walk around the room and facilitate the students understanding by stopping to ask questions about how they are finding and recording their information.When most partners have completed recording their results, have different students come up and show their bubble prints and recording sheet under the document camera. The students will get IMMEDIATE feedback on their bubbles since the whole

class can see the size of each bubble and their recorded results. Have the students describe their results and ask them to compare and contrast the radius, diameters and circumferences of their circles, while highlighting and pointing to key aspects of the bubbles using the document camera. Students are now actively involved in the process rather than being passive learners.Independent Practice: I will now tell the students that they will get to try one on their own. This time the students will be given new construction paper and be asked to blow a bubble that has the largest circumference they can make. Have them record the radius, diameter, and circumference of their own circle following the same steps you modeled earlier. When your students are finished, have several come up to the document camera and compare their findings. Differentiated Instruction: For the students with IEP’s, I will give them fewer problems, if necessary. Enlarge the test and pictures underneath the document camera so all students can see the details better and focus on certain aspects of the bubbles.
As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.
Temple University Fox School of Business ‘17, Course Hero Intern
I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.
University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern
The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
