Reflection: Pacing How Did He Do That? Backwards Speech Design (Day 1 of 2) - Section 2: SSR


My students asked if they could read for the whole period today. A little bit of my teacher soul had to die when I told them no, but as I mentioned in my reflections from yesterday, the combination of a bad sub and their lack of preparedness meant that we needed to devote some of our time today to playing catch up before moving forward into our next unit.

After talking with my teaching partner, I decided that I could probably blend a review of paper requirements with the intro to the speech unit, so I went ahead as I had originally planned. My pacing for this unit may be a little sticky, but I think they were ready to move forward with new content in class.

Unfortunately, that doesn't leave time for a whole day of reading. Maybe I can build that in when we start A Tale of Two Cities next month.
