For today’s extension activity, each student will be creating their own schedule for how they will complete each activity in 20 minutes. The room’s tables will be split up into subjects that the students have been working on for the past week; Science, Reading, Spelling/Writing, and Math. Students can visit these tables in any order that they choose to. Students will create their schedules by tweeting them so that their facilitators know that the students are on task. Each facilitator will be helping out at the table that they are assigned. When the students finish the instructions for every table, they will tweet that they are finished. (The directions to activity will be on the table.)
“Classroom authority is, above all else, a social construction that is built, taken apart, and rebuilt by teachers and students” (Pace & Hemmings, 2007, p.21).
