Reflection: Rules and Consequences Reviewing Creation Myths and Trickster Tales: A Class Review - Section 3: Review: A Look Back at the Myths


As I noted above, this Q&A session allowed me to evaluate my active and passive learners, but more than that, as this is my first real "academic" day in the classroom (being out sick last week), it gave me a chance top  establish a routine with the students, from the Monday Mindbender (noted above) to the class discussion, my students were able to experience the tone and atmosphere I try to carry in the classroom bringing a sense of joy to our study of mythology and literature. In this discussion, I was able to provide positive encouragement in the form of direct, verbal feedback to the students for their answers and behavior, as well as reinforce consequences for off-task behavior and re-focus the students trying to hold side conversations or letting their minds wander.
