Reflection: Perseverance Getting To Know the Structure of The Things They Carried - Section 4: Independent Work

 

The first day we open a novel we are reading in its entirety, I always have one purpose: to hook as many students as I can. Reading aloud is one way of achieving this. Students always tell me they’d like to read aloud to them more often because I “make the story more exciting.” Bingo! That is one thing I am looking for on a day like this one. I also give them time in class to get some reading done. It is more likely that the reading will get done if I give them class time to do it.
