Reflection: Student Feedback Where Purpose Meets Content - Section 3: Homework


One student today was unhappy that I hadn't told them in advance (as they read) to consider the role of education. I did point out to him that when he reads in "real life," he'll need to make his own purpose, but in a nod to his request, I gave a clear reading purpose for their homework. We'll talk about manhood and progress Jefferson is [not] making on our next discussion day, so this will help them prepare.
