Reflection: Student Ownership The Wedding Basket Day 1 - Section 3: Second Reading


     Pairing students to discuss ways to convert their reactions to the text into interpretive questions proved effective.  As I circulated the classroom and eaves dropped in many conversations, students were adhering to the rubric and carrying their weight.  Pairs of students were actively engaged partially because they had expectations guidelines via the rubric and once they collaborated effectively, many quality questions were derived. Student Discussions were focused on the Bloom's Question Stems and I noticed that students tried to adhere the Pair-Share rubric.
