8. Teacher Reflection-
As an introduction to Des Corps I felt the lesson was successful with the exception of some off-task behavior. from a couple of partner groups during our game.

In the future, I will be assigning partner groups with this in mind, as well as partnering of strong with weak students.

In addition to my own modeling with a student, I think I would also incorporate a modeling by a partner group to reinforce the expectations.
