Reflection: Flexibility Performing Antony's Speech: Recitation Examination and Explanation (Day 2 of 2) - Section 2: Individual Student Recitations


To the Tower!  A couple of my students had been absent a lot  lately, and they needed an extra day for performance.  It ended up creating a very special opportunity as a couple  of students ended up performing the next day in the tower (5th floor!) of  our school (my school's image!).   We had already planned a tour of the building the that day (the next day after our recitation contest), and the two students who needed extra time got to perform way up above the school in our cool tower!  Literally and figuratively, this event created a triumphant end of the school year: we'd been planning on ascending the tower all year, and finally we had the chance to do it; the students had been working hard all year to learn and master new material, and now they were able to show their best work!
