Reflection: Student Ownership Close Reading: Using Textual Evidence to Pump Up the Energy For the Win - Section 4: Celebrations


I could not have ended this lesson in a better way! Testing is one of the words that I don't use often around my students since it develops so many emotions for each individual person. Instead of lecturing my expectations, I choose a Dr. Seuss story to sum up why testing is so important and essential to student learning and instructional methods. Check out my celebration unit reflection to hear my feelings throughout the entire lesson. The moral of this unit as with my teaching style is that grabbing students' interest at various points in each lesson builds fluency, confidence, and achievement in comprehension and literacy.
