Reflection: Accountability How to be Machiavellian and Other Useful Techniques for Taking Over the World: Rubric Creation (Day 2 of 4) - Section 2: Group Discussion of Assigned Chapter


So this was one of those days where my plans and my students' productivity did not match. Their reading assignment was homework over the weekend. About half of my students completed said assignment. In order to do the next stage of the process, they have to have some sense of the reading. As such, we had to modify our work a little.

Instead of having them work in small groups, I made them work by themselves for this 10 minute chunk of time. I went around during SSR and marked the papers of those who had completed their homework and will give them extra credit in the gradebook for their efforts and timeliness.
