Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Biographies: Bio Cubes Research Project - Section 3: Biography Cube Research Project


This is my first year teaching in a dual immersion program.  I have two classes and I teach each of those classes for half of the day. Because I only have the students for half the time, I really try to maximize what we do in that short amount of time that I have them. I'm finding however, that sometimes I try to fit too much in a short period of time. This project for instance, is one of those moments where I realize I need to slow down, let the kids take their time, and to the project right.  The 30 minutes we had in the computer lab were not nearly enough to complete the research project. Tomorrow instead of continuing with the project to actual bio cube completion stage, will take another day, slow the pace down a bit, and allow the students to complete this project correctly.
