Reflection: Trust and Respect Regions of the Brain - Section 3: Wrap-up


I opted to do this assignment as a discussion rather than a written response.  Students were swamped this week writing an essay in ELA and creating a presentation for history.  Rather than give them yet another writing assignment we held a class discussion in which students first discussed as a lab group and then as an entire class (think-pair-share style).  I have found that when I am able to be flexible and understanding with assignments, students feel they are valued and respected and work even harder.  Never underestimate the power of a small gesture!
