Reflection: Student Ownership Demonstrating an Understanding of Black Boy by Using a Reader's Log (Day 2 of 2) - Section 1: Activator


I understanding that for the Reading Log's to be helpful my students have to take "ownership" of them.  This activator was the first step in helping them to reflect on why they are using them and how they can improve their comprehension as well as analysis of the text they read.

The student sample I attached was one of the more positive reflections.  Some of the students did not like the "extra work" and said it was just more writing and not necessary. Others felt it was to soon to know if the log is helpful.  After getting this feedback I realize it is very important for me to keep asking for their reflections on the use of the logs as well as giving them the input necessary for them to understand how it may be benefit them as readers.  Changing negative mind sets will take time.
