Reflection: Flexibility The Age of Faith in Review: Studying for Myths and Puritans Unit Test - Section 4: Test Yourself: Independent Review

 

What is the saying about "The best-laid plans"? Unfortunately, my plan to settle the students down and talk one-on-one did not go as expected here. Students were still wound up from the boardwork and cartoon discussion, and quickly fell to side conversations and talking to friends in both of the classes. As such, I still took the opportunity to move about the room and talk to students as they needed, but it was a more chaotic, but high-energy experience than initially planned. Most questions dealt with what I intended in the ideas on the review: "What do you mean by SOAPSTone?" and "What do you mean by 'address in her poetry,'" and as such this time became one-on-one reviews of the terminology on the test.

In the future, I will transition more clearly and directly between activities, and leave more time for students to settle down.
