Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding They Were Looking Up Too.... More Perspective - Section 3: Comparing Perspectives


My students amaze me every day and today was no different.  So often with 4th graders, they do not show the maturity we, as teachers, would like to see.  Today, my students were immediately hooked into the lesson and were so in tuned with the emotions of the photos of the people.  They got it.  They wrote their perspectives as if they were there.  And during the Venn diagram time, they had real conversations about what they "saw".  In fact, I heard a pair of students speaking in first person as if they were there.  Great lead in to tomorrow's lesson!!!

Now, tomorrow, they may be back to picking at one another, but today they got it and for today I will take it!!!
