Reflection: Student Feedback Read Across America Day: Determining Genre - Section 3: Read, Read, Read!


This was one of those lessons that doesn’t seem like much, but provides a huge pay off. Once again, students received much needed time to simply read and talk about their reading with others. I received immediate feedback on a specific skill while catching up on conferences. During today’s reading time, I listened in on several amazing conversations students were having about their books. It made me want to do this more often!
