Reflection: Lesson Planning Text Structure - Review - Section 4: Wrap Up


Students are asked to read a text for class tomorrow at the end of class today...why?

Simply put, my students are at many different levels of reading.  For tomorrow's activity it is imperative that they all be at the same point coming in, so by giving them the text today it levels the playing field a little.  Students will start on the read and perhaps finish in class where they can ask questions if needed, but they can also continue at home if necessary.

If I asked my students to do this reading at the beginning of class tomorrow as few undesirable things would happen.  Students who are unmotivated would read until others have finished and stop.  Those who struggle would not finish as fast as the others and may feel excluded or give up on the reading as well. Finally, since all members of the group would not have read the entire article, the level of learning would decrease. A few members would be making decisions and learning while the others watch.  Not what I want.
