Reflection: Classroom Setup Creating a Web-Based Research Notebook: the "Formative Assessment" (Part 6 of 6) - Section 3: Preview of Reading for Next Week (Homework for Tonight)


The lesson here, the 6th out of 6 and the final one in the Notebook "mini-unit," includes this bit of practical instruction.  For my course, I teach these six lessons in this sequence, and, in the last class period, I make the request to read some of Alicia's Story for homework.  

Also, generally speaking, the review of the formative-student-friendly check list (included here in the resources), does not take in a full period my classroom, so I give students reading time to get a "jumpstart" on their homework.

Clearly, then, this "tail end" bit of the class period can be simply deleted for those teachers who do not want to include Alicia's Story in their curriculum
