Reflection: Student Ownership Smart Phone Literature Project Day Three - Section 2: Small-Group Collaboration: Smart Phone Literature Project


Students must take ownership for their learning with this performance task.  I circulate and act merely as a facilitator. When they ask me questions about literature or possible apps, I remind them of their proficiency in independent practice and self-correction, which they use without prompting when reading individual works of literature and engaging in group work.  I redirect them to the text and their group, stepping away. Inevitably, they realize that they are proficient learners and can find the answers on their own.
