Reflection: Adjustments to Practice C'mon Pigs, Sins and Virtues in Western Civilization (Day 2 of 2) - Section 3: Applying Knowledge: Revise Your Position


I really wanted to see how my students would rework their responses.  However, the boiler came on for the first time this year and set off the fire alarm during the discussion of the poem.  We spent the remainder of the class outside.  So, I did not have a chance to pass back their short answer essay for revision.  

I tried to ask them how they might have changed their response while we were in line on the football practice field, but they were hanging out with their 3,200 closest friends.  A discussion about poetry was not happening.
