There are many things that we discussed at the conference. There are many ways that I can improve inside, and outside of class. First of all, I need to be much better at managing my time. I tend to play with my hair, and get distracted all the time. When this happens and I get really out of focus, I should go outside and take a walk or drink some water. About water, I should bring my water bottle to class so that I can keep hydrated and be more focussed. I also need to read more at home and make a schedule about the evening.
I think that I could have talked more. Because I didn’t talk so much I didn’t interrupt others while they were talking. When I did talk I asked clarifying questions which I think are important because it gives me a better understanding of the book. I should have inquire and probed more.
“Despite the fact that Hero on a Bicycle is about World War II resistance fighters, it was kind of boring. Somewhat boring is a great phrase to describe this one.” I disagree with this statement because I think the book had action all the time because it was all about the war and Paolo going on adventures. The story was about action and was barely boring. ” This book was a good, quick historical fiction read, especially for middle school boys. There was action enough to keep the book moving at a good pace.” I agree with this because I felt that it was aimed toward middle school boys and it was set at perfect pace. And I know that most middle school boys like books that have a good pace to it and language that can be understood by. Not many like books with hard vocabulary.
