Reflection: Accountability Follow Up: The Hand Janie Was Dealt in Their Eyes Were Watching God - Section 3: Independent Reading


I gave students another firm talk about the importance of keeping up with the reading. I told them that this means that they will have additional homework over the Thanksgiving break. The homework is to make sure all information is filled in for 5 or 6 cards. They have been getting support during class to fill in the information in previous cards. They are going to be working on several cards at home on their own, but I am not worried. Even though many are behind in reading, I do get a sense that they have a good understanding of what they have actually read. I am confident that they will be able to finish 5 cards on their own during the break with few problems. When we get back from Thanksgiving break, I will set aside some time to give them the opportunity to ask for help with anything they were not able to finish on their own.
