Reflection: Student Ownership Daisy and Gatsby Reunited: Exploring Character Interaction - Section 3: Reading Day: Chapter 6 (and 7!)


As noted above, today's conversation on Chapter 5 ran much longer than I anticipated, and we did not spend as much time reading independently as initially planned. But like yesterday, students remained focused as they read, and I was able to provide feedback as they did so. One of the most challenging aspects of independent reading is getting students to ask questions about what they are reading. While the review guides help, giving students a focus for their reading, by circulating the room and engaging the students I can also address any questions.
