Reflection: Real World Applications Character Counts - Section 2: Instruction


Using "first impressions" worked very well! The students all really enjoyed doing the activity.  It was fun for them to be able to express their first impressions of their teachers.  I ended up having a little more fun with the activity and shared some of my first impressions of them.  I only used the students I knew had a good sense of humor and would be able to handle the spot light. 


I think this developed a strong sense of community in the room that demonstrated to my students the type of honest classroom I like to run. It also allowed them to get into my brain a little and see how I think. 


They really enjoyed this part of the lesson.
