Reflection: High Quality Task Putting Our Skills to the Test: The Trial - Section 2: Court Trial


All of the preparations paid off today. My kids were in two teams of 16 students and they were on fire today. From start to finish, I kept my expectations high, and the kids were able to chat, debate, disagree, and stay focused for the entire trial. Breaking everything down over a few days and keeping my rules and procedures consistent really helped make this activity the best. The kids were buzzing about it at lunch afterwards. Something so simple, made reading just come alive for them.
