Reflection: Accountability In Their Shoes Assignment - Section 2: Whole Group Review?


As I expected, many of my students came in gushing over having finished the book, loving it and hating that it was over.  For the sake of the few in each class who dutifully stopped reading after chapter 28, we did indeed postpone our whole-group discussion until everyone has had the chance to experience the ending on his/her own terms.

While this was an easy adjustment to make in terms of lesson planning/alteration, I would advise any teacher to stay attuned to the ebb and flow of his/her students, and to not fear making on-the-spot adjustments for whatever greater good may be presenting itself.
