  • 7. •  What  angle  (between  0  and  360)  – is  in  the  second  quadrant  and  a  sine  =  0.23?  – Sketch  the  quadrants  and  tell  me  what  you  know.  – Which  is  the  second  quadrant?  – What  do  you  know  about  the  second  quadrant?  – What  do  you  know  about  sine?  
  • 8. Powerful  feedback  to  build  a  sense  of  agency  •  I  see  you  know  how  to  write  the  beginning  of  that  word….  •  Can  you  show  me  a  word  you  took  a  risk  at  spelling/using?  •  Circle  your  2  most  powerful  words/phrases.  •  I  bet  you’re  proud  of  yourself.  •  Which  part  are  you  sure  about,  and  which  part  are  you  not  sure  about?
