Little did I know what would happen...
What we never expected, was the positive feedback and thoughtful questions that they were sharing with one another orally and through the written notes that they were creating. During our morning discussion, I mentioned that often times visitors make notes and ask questions to remember what they saw and learned. I never would have predicted that the whole class would begin making notes.
What an authentic purpose for writing, communicating, reflecting, and being together!
My last post on this topic will be about the students' final thoughts, and what notes they recorded when they visited their own classroom.
