Reflection: Joy Stories by the Fireside: Understanding "Snowbound" - Section 1: Intro and Welcome: Happy Birthday, Bram Stoker


In all of my daily intros, I try to create a sense of ownership in the classroom for my students. Today's allowed me to revisits a conversation we began days ago on Halloween, regarding scary stories. I had mentioned the Wendigo, but had not had an opportunity to tell the story. For some students, their reactions of the students as I told them the story showed their engagement, but for others, gave me chance to gauge who does not react to verbal-story telling, and who does not react to "scary" stories. Since we are moving into Edgar Allan Poe next week, I wanted to have a sense of these reactions when I could see the students face-to face, rather than the circle we sat in on Halloween.
