They will have to begin working by themselves, and after 10 minutes the students will be allowed to partner up and work on their worksheets together. The teacher will walk around to check for students understanding and to make sure they are staying on task.
Checking For Understanding:
 At the end of class, the students answers will be checked together as a class to see what they answered correctly and incorrectly.
 The students will be given an exit slip with a random question from todays lesson listed. They must answer the question before they can leave the classroom.
 The effectiveness of the lesson will be evaluated by the how the students answered the exit slip questions. From here tomorrow's lesson can be changed to make sure the information that was not fully understood can be retaught.
Teacher Reflections:
 From the answers given on the exit slips, the teacher can be evaluated by how much of the information was obtained.
