Reflection: Self-Talk Titanic: The Project Day Four - Section 3: Presentations


As I stated earlier, this entire process was nearly spur of the moment and largely unplanned. However, at its completion, I’m thrilled that we made time for it. By far this was what students enjoyed most out of the entire unit. Not the cool videos or the fiction text, but making these projects. They jumped at the chance to work a little harder during writers’ workshop if it meant having more time to work on their projects later. Students couldn’t wait to share ideas they came up with on their own the night before with their group members the next day. To be honest, of all we completed throughout the year, students were more engaged and excited during this week than any other. It served as a great reminder to me just how important this type of work really is in a classroom.
