Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Snowballs in August - Section 3: Activity

 

Sometimes you will get a group of students who simply can’t handle this type of activity. I had such a class last year. Things spiraled out of control before we finished the very first side. In that case, I have them work as long as they are able to maintain some semblance of control and then bring the activity to a close.
