Group meeting 2, blog 4

I was excited to meet my group and get to know each of the students interest. I was nervous at first but as I got to know them it was fun working with them. They had brilliant ideas and it was nice hearing them.  My lesson plan did go well because I got to do everything I had plan because the student were collaborating and wanted to work on the questions that they were asked. I could see that one of the students was having a hard time  and I tried helping him. I asked questions to get him engaged but had to play an activity so he can  get engaged and give some brilliant ideas he had, even though he said he didn’t want to be in this group he knew more than he thought.  I think that on my next lesson plan I will start with an activity so they can have fun for a bit then get them to work in the assignments we have to do. Before it was time to go, I asked to ask their family what immigration was so they could get some background. I promised them that I would bring more information like articles that are related to our topic. My students are very anxious to find a solution even though they want to write a letter and publish it in the newspaper so their voices are heard. It will be an excited semester working with them and come up with great solutions for this cause. 🙂

  1. Tracy, I am so happy to hear that your meeting went well. I observed engaged students and hear you speaking to them in Spanish. How affirming for them to acknowledge them in their first language. Continue to strive for engaging lessons – it will help your group continue to be productive. It is a good idea to start with a warm-up activity and then start on the work of your topic. They will need lots of background knowledge on immigration before they decide what the best project will be for them to do. Great work! Sue

  2. Hi Tracy! Keeping the students focused is a huge task. I liked how you were paying attention and noticed a student not engaged and decided to address the issue immediately before letting it go on too far. I am excited as well as what to expect throughout our course at Bancroft.
