Reflection: Positive Reinforcement Information Literacy: Laying the groundwork for determining and analyzing evidence based claims (2 of 2) - Section 3: Student Work Time


In this video where i rephrase the topic and ask students to find evidence, one of more quiet, reserved students steps up and offers some insight into the article.  I am so happy I captured it on film.  I think it was the combination of small groups, modeling and the structured format of analyzing a text step-by-step that allowed this student to feel comfortable enough to come forward.  I didn't want to embarrass him, so after class, I asked him to stay for a few minutes.  I showed him the video of him contributing to his group in meaningful ways and he smiled huge!  What a great moment for this rigorous lesson.  And what a great moment for this student.  Here's hoping this inspires him to further contribution to class.  

  Positive Reinforcement: It is a great feeling when wall flowers step up!
