Last Friday I asked students to bring random items to school on Monday, and to drop them in a box upon entering the classroom. There were some super interesting finds, and also some last-minute contributions. I described the objects using language I thought they could easily understand, but some of the items really stumped me! I was impressed by their comprehension and enthusiasm.
Changes for next time?
As usual, I need to slooooooooow down my incomprehensible output. I’m a work in progress! Also, the next time I do this activity I think I’ll say everything I want to say, and then create a time barrier to allow my slow processors to think. Hopefully this will create more comprehension and participation equality. Lastly, this activity would be an awesome way to share more cultural products. I can’t wait to try it again!
