    • Use coloured paper strips Photo: Pathlight School In the lesson planning process, the PLC membersalso decided to use coloured paper strips. During the lesson, two types ofengagement were observed.
    • Type 1 Engagement Such engagement is not directly related to content of the lesson. However, students were more involved and were more responsive. Photo: Pathlight School Type 2 Engagement Such engagement is directlyrelated to content of the lesson. In this photo a student used the strips to make sense of the problem situation.
    • Lesson 3: Rich Observation, Rich Discussion
    • Lesson 4: Synthesizing Discussion
    • The team was also hopeful that the paper strips would help students connect the diagrams they draw and the problem situation. Hopefully, students are more engaged when they are doingPhoto: Pathlight School things that make sense to them.
    • Would the colour help students distinguish the unknown variable from the constant? The purpose of the research lesson is for teachers to observePhoto: Pathlight School students to answer questions such as this one. The lesson planning meetings raised such questions. The research lesson provides a platform to „see‟ the answers to such questions. The post-lesson discussion is a platform to discuss these answers.
