Reflection: Student Self-Assessment What It Means to Be a Catcher in the Rye: Board Game Debrief and Poetry Analysis - Section 4: Final Exam Prep: Student Questions & Review


In many ways, this review (as we did in the previous class, and as students will have the full class tomorrow to address) allows students to "test themselves" on their knowledge of the material before sitting down to the final exam. As previously noted, and as the students themselves notes, students tend to use this time to either review on their own or quiz each other; listening to them today certainly demonstrated this was the case. Although, circulating the room, I continually reminded students to add focus on "why" or "how" the ideas appeared in the literature; the students tend to focus on memorization despite little of what we've done this year being rote. 

During the open-question portion of today's review, students mainly asked about ideas from the beginning of the semester, making me think I need to add more continuous reinforcement so early units are not forgotten during later study.
