Reflection: Accountability Choice Novel Unit: Characters & Conflict - Section 1: Setting Goals


I find that this unit becomes as much about teaching time management as instruction on literary analysis! The Daily Log is really helpful because the students begin to assess how well they use their time. It offers concrete proof of how long a task REALLY takes to complete as opposed to how long a student THINKS it will take.
