Reflection: Adjustments to Practice My Opinion: Paragraph Four - Section 2: Setting a Purpose


I truly was intent on simply giving directions and setting students to work today. However, the blank stares and plethora of questions I received when I first mentioned “restating,” changed that plan. Perhaps they just needed more practice, but students acted as if they had never heard this word before today. Don’t you love when this happens! So while I didn’t want to provide any assistance at all, I did break down and provide the one example of how to restate their first reason. I did try, however, to make sure my example reason wasn’t one I had seen on throughout the week.  While I aimed to provide just a bit of support, I’m never a proponent of doing students’ work for them.
