Reflection: Classroom Setup Main Idea in the Desert - Section 3: Guided Practice


Students are really motivated by the use of technology in the classroom, so anytime I can project our text on the Smart Board I try to do so (Projecting on the Board). It also allows me to reference any specific words and the students can see them. It is hard to try to evidence text if the text is not projected on the board. I find that students need help locating the words or sentences, so by placing them on the Smart Board everyone can see the text I am referring to without having to hunt through the words.
