Reflection: Joy Peer Feedback on Practicing and Performing Speeches - Section 1: SSR


The new Hunger Games movie just came out and there are at least five students in each of my classes reading Mockingjay. I am also reading Mockingjay. It is such a cool experience to be reading the same book as my students for choice reading. It allows them to feel comfortable suggesting other titles to me and opens up lots of cool, informal discussions. We have all been rather giddy in our love of the film adaptation of Catching Fire and have had good discussions about the adaptation as well as what we think they will do with the third and fourth movies.

Any chance I can get to read what is currently popular amongst the students, I take so that I can soak up these seemingly unplanned literary discussions with my kiddos.
