Reflection: Positive Reinforcement F451: Connections to Other Bradbury Tales - Section 1: Anticipatory Set


Why make a whole day of this? When the students appear to be on the verge of making large connections and breakthroughs in understanding, they cannot be ignored or simply appeased. They need the opportunity to work through it and flesh it out.  There are too many times in education when we struggle to cultivate such a desire to go further with an idea or concept, so I felt it was imperative to honor and reinforce this collective desire now. My hope is that they will be more inclined to continue digging, searching, and striving to go further with their studies and learning of concepts and ideas, whether in ELA or elsewhere. I see this as a genuine opportunity to increase the likelihood of this, which is worth a day at the very least to let them process and grow.
