Reflection: Classroom Setup Extended Metaphor Essay, Threaded Revision - Section 2: Threaded Revision


Ordinarily, I wouldn't allow unprepared students to leave the main task; however, circumstances are rather extraordinary right now. A combination of self-selected snow days (students not coming to school because of weather on their own choice) and rampant colds have resulted in mass absences and thus mass late work. This late work wasn't necessarily the result of students not trying as much as students needing more time, and so I allowed them to finish their writing.

Of course, this meant I had to balance two separate working groups. I used my room to help me do so. All students working on revision were in one area; all students finishing their essays were in another. This helped me keep track of who should be doing what and keep the peace (quiet working conditions).
