Reflection: Writing Across the Disciplines Our Perfect Schedule - Section 2: Activity


Instead of allowing students to just pick random numbers for their schedule, I also expected students to write why they made the choices they did. I expect them to be able to justify their decisions, and by explaining why each subject got the amount of time that it did, with detail, it gives them more opportunity to understand the amount of time they spend doing things.
