Reflection: Relevance Reading Circle Meeting & Assessment - Cinder Book Two - Section 1: Warm Up


I pride myself in teaching my students not only language arts, but the ability to think for themselves. I want my students to be able to process more than just facts. I want them to have empathy and an understanding of the "bigger picture" in life.

As I said in the lesson my students were babies when 911 happened and I see such a difference between student who are able to remember and these students.  I was teaching on the morning of September 11, 2001 and understand that there are no words to convey the feeling I and my students had when we turned on the television in our room.  So, I allow my social studies teacher to teach the facts, and I teach the lessons to learn from history and the value in understanding the human condition.

I've used the text I use in this lesson for a few years and always get wonderful response from my students.
