Reflection: High Quality Task Analyzing a Flashback: Gale and Katniss Meet - Section 5: Third Read: Teacher Modeling


Close reading, including the third read, is a high quality task.  That's great, but having a high quality task brings its own classroom management issues with it.

Students want to talk.

If I pause to reflect, they want to jump in.  Especially towards the beginning, I have to remind students that this is my time to talk, not theirs.  They'll get a chance to talk later, but now it's my turn.  If a student raises their hand, I just ignore it, although sometimes I tell them that I'm not going to call on them. Eventually they give up.  What's interesting is that when they then have time to talk?  They don't, which just goes to show how much routines, procedures, and guidelines are in order to develop authentic student discourse.
