Focus of the Class: Thinking

• Redirect –vs- Confrontation

• Confrontation interrupts the learning

• Notes: writing / passing / reading / reaction

My Goals

• Fraction with forward slash

• Make it interesting and yes even fun

• Give you lots of chances to be successful

• For you to recognize what you have to do to learn
