Reflection: Checks for Understanding F451 Reading Assignment 3: Day 3 - Section 1: Anticipatory Set


I like the students to take a first pass at the character analysis activity once we reach this, a sort of halfway point, because it provides each of them, and me as well, with a sort of benchmark to measure progress. It provides me with a clearer perception of who is really getting it so far, and who may need some additional support. The students are also very aware of whether they have success or not with this task, and thus are able to make the modifications to practice, procedure, and/or effort that are necessary to achieve a more adequate level of success as we move forward. Since we are only at the halfway point, there is plenty of time to make these adjustments and get things back on track. 

Sometimes, students are able to hide from us the true extent to which they are struggling. With this activity, as simple as it is, they tend to be less successful at this. From this point forward, I now will pay a little extra attention to those students who demonstrated greater need at this time until I am confident that they are on-track again.
