This is my first time here and I'm excited to learn new things from experienced professionals.
I'm beginning student teaching in a few weeks and I'm curious about something:
Do you think it's better to provide in-class reading time for assigned novels and short stories because "they won't read them otherwise" or does it work to assign the readings and then do the "work" in class?
I'm trying to understand if I'm being naive in assuming that they'll ge the reading done outside so we can work on the activities in class? I don't plan on assigning a bunch of outside homework like study guides and etc. I hope to accomplish the work in-class but they need to come "prepared" (or as prepared as they can).
Does this make sense?
