Are you trying to promote metacognition in your math classroom? Would you like your students to think critically about math?
Give them quick writes!
This is a set of 5 writing prompts designed to get your students thinking critically and deeply about the Pythagorean Theorem.
Each sheet has two prompts per page - you can either cut the pages in half and save paper, or you can give the entire sheet to each student, have them fill out the top, and then pass it back a few days later to allow the student to edit their initial thoughts.
Either way, you'll be blown away by the progression in your students' thought processes as you continue to allow them the time and space to metacognate!
