Reflection: Student Ownership Biography: Display Board - Section 2: Independent Practice


I was very proud of the independence shown by my students.  They were able to work with very little input from me.  Because of the skills and procedures I had set in place at the beginning of the year, they knew how to use keywords to help them find images online. They knew where to find supplies and ask each other for help.  The buzz around the room was phenomenal! I felt like a conductor and the orchestra was playing like we had practiced all year. I had a reached one of my main goals for the year.  The students were able to work as if the teacher were not present.
