Reflection: Adjustments to Practice The Stamp Act - Section 3: Application Part II


I absolutely love teaching with simulations.  In addition to the fabulous learning opportunities and growth of concepts, the students always surprise me with their reactions to specific parts.  I say surprise because each year completely different things happen.

This year, I felt unprepared when I didn't consider each of the items that would be taxed.  All it takes is one child to mention a relevant component you've missed, and the whole class is on board with it.  I was irritated that only one girl had any money left after the taxes because in my mind it was supposed to turn out differently.

As teachers, we do our best to prepare.  Next time around, I'll be more detail oriented in this area!
