Reflection: Flexibility Creating a Classroom Culture Through Reflecting on Moments of Successful Reading - Section 2: Writing About Their Experiences

 

Some students say they have always liked reading or have always disliked reading. If that is the case, I try to lead them to not so good vs. great times or not so bad vs. worse times. Otherwise, they can write about two different events. Either way, this can be challenging work for students to sit back and actually reflect on themselves as readers and take responsibility for taking action in their reading lives. As a teacher, I do not want to let any of them off the hook by allowing them to use the excuse of "always liking/disliking" reading. Challenge them to really think of specific things that added to the reason they liked or disliked reading. Then encourage them to replicate the good things and make a plan to avoid the bad.
