Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Literature Circle #2: Exploring Holden's Relationships - Section 3: Wrap Up & Extension


As noted above, I was out today, so the sub took care of wrap up. Looking through the small groups' assignment folders, it appeared the students were able to do exactly what they needed to do: the students who were present all turned in their literature circle assignments, there were no "off task" notes from the sub, and the next day, students adjusted to our look at foils very well. In the case of my ELA/Grade 10 English II classes, they have done an excellent job learning how to accomplish things on their own: I'm growing increasingly impressed with their self-reliance.
