Reflection: High Expectations Close Read: Casey at the Bat - Point of View Writing - Section 4: Writing Project - From Another's Point of View


I always have high expectations of my students.  When I was on maternity leave and left my lesson plans for my long term sub, she felt it necessary to omit some of the tasks I expected the students to accomplish because she felt I expected too much of the students.  That may be true.  However, I find that students rise to the occasion and meet the expectations I set for them.  This task is no exception.  Not only did the students create great written pieces of written from the point of view of a character in Casey at the Bat, but they also took the challenge to share that piece with the class.  The more we share, the more comfortable the students get with sharing.  They truly amaze me at what they are able to accomplish.
