Reflection: Accountability Ruby Bridges In Another Form: Viewing the Movie - Section 1: The Book is Always Better (Or Is It??)


It always happens- you give students an assignment and they say, "I've never read that book, seen that movie, done that, felt that, seen that, etc."  So, if that happens on this assignment, just tell the students to write which movie was their favorite and if they HAD read the book which they think would be better.  Don't let them have an out- it sets a precedent that you don't want to set.  High expectations require everyone to do their best at all times and if they say they haven't experienced something you're asking them to do, then just give them something else to do.  Hold them to it- don't ever let them out- they'll be better off for it in the long run.
