Reflection: Accountability Dystopian Elements in Our World (Day 3 of 3) + Book Club Meeting Four - Section 2: Book Club Meeting

 

When I heard from my sub about today's lesson, she said that the discussions went really well. Students were focused and on task and, as the majority of them had finished their books, they were invested in what they were talking about.

Notice that I said the majority of them had finished their books. She said is was pretty clear that a few students had fallen behind and were going to need more time to read over the break.

While these were officially our last book club meetings, I think I will take her suggestion into consideration when planning for our first day back. It wouldn't hurt to have a brief/modified version of a book club discussion to wrap up the unit and transition to our next unit, which is a study of social commentary. 

I hate to "reward" slacker behavior with extra time, but I do have some empathy for my students. If their heads were as ready for spring break as mine was, then a few extra days to wrap up reading and a final, final discussion about the books before moving on to our next unit will be good for all of us.
