changes Gone are desks in this particular class replaced by tables where six or seven stu dents sit We like to keep them in said Mrs Lindley explaining the positive side of group also teachers must keep a close eye on those tables They like do more Some time ago in the old days as some might say students brought slate tablets to class and worked their problems with chalk on those tablets Now students are using dry eraser board and felt markers which they seem to enjoy They work on problems at their table and compare their answers to the oth er tables Show me your tablets says Mrs Lindley as the students hold their tablets high above their heads for the oth ers to read over There are still the old standbys howev er such as the chalkboard Almost every inch of wall space in this portable building is covered The students still walk up to the chalkboard and work those math prob lems Mrs Lindley also uses a overhead projector to display problem on a screen and a giant eraser board to present other problems Students routinely switch from projec tion to the chalkboard to the eraser board all the while working out of their books Mrs Lindley begins the class with a les son in logic or critical thinking and prob lem solving as it is called Students are being taught more and more of this type of lesson Many achievement tests today which students take until they graduate include logic
