Reflection: Organizational Systems Two Way Mirror: Revealing information about the narrator and other characters in "The House on Mango Street" - Section 5: Self-Selected Reading


While I would love to show you some examples of journals today, I am not collecting them just yet. I have asked students to hold them until the end of the quarter. I have given students a due date, and I really want to make sure that some of the students that have been slacking on their journal entries have time to spruce them up before turning them in. I want to always catch my students "in the right" so I often give them time to get it right before giving them to me. Sure, the expectation is that they are keeping up with their SSR journals, but let's just "keep it real"...they don't. I'm going to slowly move them toward being more accountable for having things done everyday, but I think they need a bit more time. Maybe I'm being too nice, but we'll see if it pays off when I read them!

During SSR time today, I focused on a couple of students that had not turned in assignments, and I discussed their current grades with them. I want all of my students to be successful, so as we near the end of the quarter, I am checking in with some students that currently have less than a C in the course to see if they can improve their grades.
