Reflection: Student Ownership Independent Reading Reflection Essay for Marking Period 3 - Section 3: Independent Practice: Writing Time


I am not a data person. I hate numbers and I hate analyzing them. Maybe that makes me a bad teacher but I am not hard-wired that way, at least that's the excuse. Since I'm not, I give students the responsibility to analyze their own data in order to make goals for the future. This lesson allows students to analyze different forms of data based on their independent reading. They can look at the amount of books they've read, the amount of pages they read, and the time they can read for in one sitting. They can use this in order to make individualized goals for next marking period. When they make individualized goals they tend to be more realistic with themselves and feel more comfortable in making them then the goals I would give them as a teacher.
