  7. 7. 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.
  8. 8. 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.
  9. 9. 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 theyPhoto: Pathlight School are doing things that make sense to them.
  10. 10. Would the colour help students distinguish the unknown variable from the constant? The purpose ofPhoto: Pathlight School the research lesson is for teachers to observe 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.
