Reflection: Student Grouping The Turning Point of Romeo and Juliet: Comprehending Act III - Section 2: Application: Group Reading Time


The groupings for today's group reading were random, but I paid close attention to ensure that students that tend to remain focused were grouped appropriately with less-focused students in order to keep them engaged and on track. If I were to teach this lesson again, I'm not sure I would make the same decision to have students read in groups. Some of the feedback I got from some students was that it was a little distracting to hear other groups reading at the same time. In order to deal with this, I allowed students to read in the hall. Next time, I will consider other strategies to keep students engaged in the reading.
