This mini-lesson was really important because people didn't know how to print out the slides they needed. So Mr. Solarz told one person (me) how to do it and so I went into a corner and did a Mini-lesson on how to print the slides. You needed your Science Fair slides for the presentation so it was really important we got this was only in Chrome so I'm not exactly sure how to do it in Firefox. But my guess would be that it would be similar to Chrome. If this Mini-lesson wasn't done at all Mr. Solarz would have to do a mini lesson on it. This would then waste more time that we could be spending making our slides and backboards.
This Mini-lesson makes us a student led classroom because when someone else does a Mini-lesson you have a choice to keep working or to go find out what the Mini-lesson is, if you are interested. But when Mr. Solarz does one everyone has to stop what we are doing and make everyone listen you have to watch his Mini-lessons, because he does them when we can't figure something out. The teacher would then have to waste everyone's time (except for those who need it) instead of a kid doing one where you can not listen, it is your choice if a kid does one.
