Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Intro to Theme - Section 2: Mini Lesson


This was one of those lessons where something said in my first period made me alter my instruction for second period. I was introducing the idea of theme, and was probing the kids on what they knew and one of my students said that it was like the bumper sticker of the book. I'd never heard this and thought it was fabulous, so in between classes, I added it to the PowerPoint and mentioned it several times throughout the lesson.

Leave it to a kid to teach you something cool!
