Finding Memorable Moments

Filed under: Uncategorized — by dt78830 @ 6:01 pm

I agree with this article that classrooms need to have the voices of teachers’ and children’s stories.  I thought it was cute when the boy told the new student that  he can tell his own stories in their classroom and you did not have to copy them from the board.  I liked the idea of “exploding a moment” where they acted it out.  They needed something for the English as a second language learners to understand.  I believe this “crafting technique” would work well with all students.

  1. I agree. It is so funny how students phrases can tell so much about their interpretations and likes and dislikes. I think acting out an exploding moment would reallly help students to see how much can be written about one small part of time.
