Reflection: Very Superstitious - Section 2: Getting Down to Business


Whenever I start a class on small group discussion, the timing completely leaves my control.  There are days that some groups have these amazing, organic discussions that I don't want to interrupt.  Other days, I can't get kids to even talk about what they read. 

If you have discussions that go long, GREAT!  Don't stifle them.  Students can do the connect to Tom Sawyer tomorrow as a starter or as a homework assignment.
