Reflection: Performance Tasks Using a "Hook" Students Write Individual or Collective Narratives (Day 2 of 2) - Section 4: Wrap Up


Presenting work by reading in front of peers is a challenge for many of my students but one that I hope they will meet before graduating high school.  In the beginning of the year the student in the video was very reluctant to even answer questions in front of his peers out of fear of looking "dumb."  After a lot of encouragement and creating a classroom culture that respects each others differences, in this lesson he volunteered to stand in front of his peers and present information clearly and logically as required in the speaking and listening standard SL.9-10.4.  I'd like to hear any of your success stories as well.
