Reflection: Co-Teaching Doodling 'The Rime of the Ancient Mariner - Section 3: Doodling While Reading


Part of the challenge of teaching is the difficulty in finding a good substitute teacher, especially when life happens unexpectedly and sub-lesson-plans are thrown together on a plane trip back from D.C. 

I lucked out when I had to be away for a week unexpectedly because my substitute was an educated community member who had a good rapport with the students, and enjoyed reading enough to pre-read "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner" before completing this activity with the students.  

If at all possible, try to have your substitute pre-read the material so they know what the students are reading. 

In this case my sub, M., modified the activity slightly so that a student went up to the board and drew while other students read aloud.  He let me know that this motivated the students to draw, and made the reading go faster. 

I had not thought of that technique myself and all the credit goes to him.
