Reflection:
The student would be able to practice their critical thinking skills. The questions given
can give the student a chance to actively communicate with his/her classmates in a
positive manner. Students will be able to actively engage in the activities provided
because it strongly connects with their real-life experiences and gives them a deeper
understanding by relating it to something they understand or have experienced. I believe
the strengths to this lesson plan is the familiarization students will have with the
curriculum being taught. This lesson plan addresses real-life problems that some students
face, making it more relatable. The weaknesses I believe, is that this lesson plan is too
much, the activities might not transition effectively, and students might veer off the
lesson at hand.
