Reflection: Student Grouping Independent Theme Analysis: Night, Chapters 3 & 4 (2 of 2) - Section 3: Student Work Time


Being flexible is one of the most important qualities for me as a teacher.  Giving up the class control and handing that over to the students for group work is difficult and nerve-wracking.  However, often when I do, really good work happens.  This video of students working shows evidence of the two female students tracing a theme and supporting that thinking with text evidence.  It also shows students looking each other in the eye, which might seem like a small task, but students have a difficult time with this adult skill.
