Reflection: Accountability Final Novel Discussion - Section 2: Discussion


As much as I want to see every student succeed, it doesn't always happen. A few students are still unprepared for their final discussion today, even though it is a summative assessment.

For these students, there are still options. Discussion is a skill we will continuously use this year, in small groups and as a whole class. After further practice, students can request a re-evaluation of their discussion skills and show me that they can, in fact, prepare and share effectively. However, the ball is now in their court. I will not initiate this assessment; they must come to me with proof of improved skill and a request for re-evaluation. While I will encourage this, I will not require it. Sometimes students must step up for their own education.
