Reflection: Routines and Procedures Identifying Imagery of Wrath and Redemption: Collaborative Explication of "Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God" - Section 2: Advertising Wrath: Creating a Poster Advertising "Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God"


As students shared the imagery they noted during their previous reading, I wandered the room and was able to track and check in who did and did not do the homework.

As this is our first big "collaborative" project, I found that I did not need to focus students on the task at hand as much as one might expect, but I visited each group, talk about their ideas, and suggest any improvements (if needed). Sharing their ideas got the students excited, which in turn built their ownership of the material. Through this one-on-group contact, I was able to guide the students also got into the "routine" of small-group projects and some of my guidelines for working collaboratively, such as everyone sits on the same level or conversation can be animated but should not drown out their peers.

By taking ownership of their project today, students will be able to focused and independent, as I will be out of the building tomorrow.
