Reflection: Student Led Inquiry Stories by the Fireside: Creating Experts on Romantic Poets - Section 2: Expert Groups: Reading and Reporting on Firesides


Today was adjusted, based on time running out yesterday, but the students mostly kept themselves on track, and certainly tackled reading the poems, either individually or collaboratively.  While I provided questions to guide them, the ultimate interpretations of meaning and support were up to the groups. We will certainly have to finish the expert group discussion tomorrow, but have picked up momentum, not unlike the growing of nature, gathering of storms, or building snowfalls our poets describe.
