Reflection: Positive Reinforcement Images of Wrath and Redemption: Jonathan Edwards' "Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God" - Section 3: Imagery of Wrath and Redemption

 

Students have not had much time for Sustained Silent Reading as of yet in my class, yet it is something valuable for both them and myself. Students read at their own pace, and selected the ideas that appeal to them most strongly for their notes. In addition, I spoke one-on-one with them when they have questions, giving them the attention they need, while still allowing other students to work individually. I was able to encourage the students who struggled, and provide clarification to the sermon's content and/or the meaning of unfamiliar words or ideas. 

Collecting the homework while they read also allowed for minimal time lost passing it in. I will be reading these over the next few days, providing feedback, and returning them before we spend time in a computer lab typing the final copy.
