I am slowly but surely working my way through James Joyce's Ulysses (my goal is to finish reading it before the summer!). I find the whole stream-of-consciousness technique fascinating (if at times confusing). Today I was in a Grade 6 class and I was suddenly reminded of Ulysses when we used TodaysMeet and saw the stream-of-consciousness of the students.
Yes, some students did get stuck but there was so much feedback available that they overcame these difficulties:
Some used blocks to help their thinking:
We were pretty chuffed to see someone reason so clearly here!
At this point we wanted to know what students thought of the whole experience. Dave, the classroom teacher, reminded them that we were looking for descriptive feedback. This is what we got. Then picture the smiles on our faces.
