Reflection: Accountability Setting Reading Goals - Section 1: Do Now: Group Work Is...

 

I intentionally called on students who have not always worked well with groups during our first few weeks; they were all able to share some aspect of good group work. I only hope they were listening to themselves. If not, I will have to intervene early in literature circles. Reminders first--if that doesn't work, then I may have to reform some groups. It's not fair to saddle an otherwise well-functioning group with a member who does not pull his or her weight.
