Reflection: Intrinsic Motivation Putting Together the Puzzle of History: Jigsaw Reading and Reporting - Section 1: Introduction & Welcome: It's a Musical Birthday


As noted when explained my rationale, above, Friday Favorite votes are intended to translate to student model and practice supporting and justifying their ideas, effectively encouraging students to go with intrinsic values, and motivation, for sharing in class. Today, the students who volunteered provided a wide sampling of reasons: donuts have variety, bagels can be added to with cream cheese, etc. It appears students are thinking beyond "because I agree," or "because I like it," which is where there supporting ideas were at the start of the school year. 

Incidentally, donuts were the big winner for the poll.
