Reflection: Accountability Creating Our Own Joyful Noise: Presenting a Poem from the Book - Section 2: On With the Show!


Whenever I have students presenting, I find it necessary to give a task to the "audience" to keep them engaged.  Perhaps it's developmental- the world still revolves around them you know- or perhaps my students just haven't learned how to be a good audience, but if I don't give them a task, they don't pay attention.

It's similar to before reading, during reading and after reading activities only it's focused on a presentation or a performance or a video or what have you.  I find it cuts down on misbehaviors and increases engagement- both of which contributes to deeper learning for the students.
