Reflection: Student Feedback Developing a Conceptual Framework: Gender Codes - Section 3: Silent Stand-Up Activity and Establishing Conceptual Framework


I've done this activity many times in classes, and it is always a powerful experience.  There is something about the silently standing up and watching their peers do the same that moves the students, and today was no exception.  I was a little worried it wouldn't work well because their are only 12 students in the class and four boys, but they all participated, and the students had a lot to say afterwards (two asked if they can borrow the book to do the activity with their peer leadership class).  Hopefully this self-reflection will stay with them as we dig into the readings and eventual personal narratives they write at the end of the unit.
