Reflection: Student Communication The Monster Who Grew Small: Day 1 - Section 2: First Reading


During the end of the first reading, I could have clarified parts of the text and made the comprehension process easier by answering some of the questions students had on their post-its.  However, I wanted to see if students could come up with the answers on their own or with their partners.  Pairing students with partners to complement their reading abilities ensures that students can draw from their partner's strengths if the pairing is assigned appropriately.  Also, I considered pairing students with the same partner more than once to see if they can establish a relationship and work on improvements together longitudinally.
