Reflection: Routines and Procedures The Moral (and Literal) Geography of Othello - Section 1: SSR


Today is the day before the last day of the quarter and I took a little time to look up and around my class during reading time to see what kids were reading. It was interesting to me to see that many of them had their copy of Othello out. They don't have any written accountability to the play yet, so it surprised me (in a good way) that they were using this time to review what we had read/watched the past few days. Besides these few kids, everyone else had a choice novel out and seemed very engage in what was happening.

I feel very satisfied with this regular use of class time for many reasons, but really, the fact that they kids seem to like what they are reading makes me most happy. Many of the students have taken to reading their choice novels at any available extra moment of class, including on their passing period, so it isn't even just during our set reading time that this is the case. I'm excited to see how it goes now that 2nd quarter is upon us.
