Modification Table MODIFICATIONRATIONALEBENEFIT Instructional – Instruction occurs in a whole group and then changes to small group. Not all students will grasp concepts when its first presented in a whole group. The teacher is able to revisit the content, and even quickly re-teach when students are in a small group. PG. 16

Reflection Thank you to everyone who gave me warm and cool comments. All of the comments helped me significantly improve this LE! PG. 18-19

Reflection Lessons learned:  Technology is not limited to computers and smart boards!  As a teacher you must always be prepared to modify lessons unexpectedly, and immediately.  Peer reviews help generate and cultivate more ideas than you could’ve originally planned independently! PG. 18-19
