Reflection: Accountability Review of Angles - Section 1: Pre-Lesson Assignment


When I gave the pre-lesson assignment to my students I stressed the importance of doing the work ahead of time. Many of my students have been in classes that have Socratic Seminars, so I reminded them of the fact that not being prepared will negatively affect other students.

Consistent with this idea, I wanted students who were not prepared be accountable to their group. So, I allowed the group to request that a student who is unprepared be removed from the group to work on their own on the assignment. This approach gives the students the power to decide how deal with the person. They can help the student, or they can decide that the student has not met reasonable expectations for participation in the group.

I also made note of which students were not prepared and I talked to the students privately about the issue. There were a few special cases, but most students should have been able to complete the assignment before the lesson.
