Reflection: Intrinsic Motivation Gallery Walk Reflection and Review - Section 3: Independent Practice - Groups


As the students had begun work on their reflections during the previous class period, I found the common theme was that students wanted and needed more time to feel confident that they had truly done a high quality job on the assigned task. I immediately took that feedback and made this time available. As the groups continue working, I go through and sit down with each group for about 5 minutes to help facilitate their work as necessary. 

They wanted to keep at it and get better at analyzing poetry. They had tasted enough success and seen enough growth in themselves that they were intrinsically motivated to improve. In order to teach students to persevere when a task it difficult, I needed to listen to them as they expressed their needs to me. My plan was to have this be a very brief activity, but they convinced me to modify my lesson to extend the time.
