Reflection: Intrinsic Motivation Building Fluency - Section 2: Lesson


Something I always grapple with is how much choice to give students. I want buy-in, and I want students to feel that their opinions are valued, but sometimes it can be time-consuming. Here, my students were choosing parts for the Reader's Theatre, and spent A TON of time choosing, assigning, and voting for parts. As I was watching it, I was thinking how I just should have chosen for the kids, but when they have the experience of owning their parts, they take it more seriously.
