Reflection: Routines and Procedures How to be Machiavellian and Other Useful Techniques for Taking Over the World: Rubric Creation (Day 2 of 4) - Section 1: SSR

However, occasionally, to make sure there is time for other activities or class focus or any number of things, I will used SSR to set up for our group work today. I walked the room to put my initials on their completed reading homework. This gave me a sense of who was ready to move into groups and who was not. It was very revealing--and annoying--how many did not have their homework done, so I had to use the final minutes of their reading time to punt.
