Reflection: Perseverance Monologues - Section 4: Day 2 - Presentations


Overall, the students enjoyed preparing for and presenting their monologues.  The week before the presentations, I set aside 10 – 15 minutes so students could practice with their peers and receive some feedback.  It also gave them the opportunity to observe other’s performances and possibly make changes.

I felt it was necessary for students to reflect about their own monologues and recognize that this activity was a basis for their development in academics.  Throughout the weeks before, we spoke about how it will be necessary to speak to either small or large groups of people in their academic or work experience.  By reflecting, they were able to make connections to possibilities in the future.
