Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Imagery -Lesson 3 of Cinder Book Three - Section 2: Lesson


I have learned, over the years, to listen to my gut.  Very often, however, the messages are sent in the mists of teaching.  It took a while for me to see the value and realize that it is okay to listen to those messages in the moment and tweak what I'm doing.

Today's class is an example because originally -with my first class of the day, I gave them a span of 5-7 pages to locate imagery.  I quickly realized that students were either all over the place or just focused on the first or second page.  It did not work.  So in my second class, I had them look at only one page.  That yielded better results, but they weren't engaged enough, so for the rest of the day, I required students to look at two pages that I knew were rich in imagery- worlds apart in the book. I was happy with the results, and students seemed to get much more out of it.

Reflection and adjustment do not always happen -nor should they always happen AFTER the lesson. Listen to your gut.
