Reflection: Joy A-P-P-L-A-U-S-E: Put Your Hands Up for Illuminated Poetry Presentations - Section 2: Present for Applause, Applause, Applause


A beautiful thing happens when students do fabulous work: They take pride in their academic accomplishments; they make enduring memories in the classroom just as they do on the playing field; they compare their work to that of their peers and offer feedback about what they would do differently. This happened on several levels as students who crowded too much text onto frames and slides verbally proclaimed this after watching a really good presentation, and they spoke of their "wish I'd done thats" when they realized that music adds to the communicative value of the projects. As a consequence, I suggested they modify and resubmit their projects; I'm more concerned w/ the process of learning, knowing the product will follow both the process and progress.
