Reflection: Intrinsic Motivation A Favorite Book - Section 3: Closure


Kids love to talk about their favorite anythings, so this kind of an activity is a win-win.  They're writing, and comparing while having fun.  It went well because the students had choice in coming up with their favorite book and enjoyed thinking of themselves in the role should there be a movie version.  I'd like to expand the lesson, and give them the chance to put a more into the movie aspect.  As I walked around while they worked, this is what generated the most excitement.
