Reflection: Routines and Procedures Temptation in the Garden: An Introduction to Paradise Lost - Section 2: SSR


We've been reading for about 6 weeks now and I am excited to see the routine that it has provided in my classroom.

I was complaining about how fast class seems to go every day and my teaching partner reminded me that we are giving 10 minutes a day to this activity. When he put it that way, I realized that I had to decide if it was worth it. So far, it absolutely is. Now that we are diving into our first really difficult texts, I think the culture of reading that we have built will help with engagement and stamina.

On the other hand, I have to be doubly mindful of how important it is to bring in the writing and language standards so that my class is not only about reading. I haven't done a great job of this yet and will need to work harder on it in future lessons.
