Reflection: Student Ownership Figurative Language -Poetry Lesson 4 - Section 1: Warm Up


Having students lead and/or demonstrate in the classroom is very important to me.  Something as simple as having them come to the front and "teach" by sharing responses that were prepared ahead of time not only allows them student ownership, but also deepens their understanding.  

I often call students up who have an incorrect response, but my students know that, that is part of it. I ask another student to "help 'em out", and I require an explanation for any response.
