Two Days Down...

Today was a nice counterbalance to yesterday's frustration. I was nervous before reading the passage for the listening section. Every time we practiced before there would be a chorus of "You're going too fast!" and "Can you read that again!" I didn't want to be a stumbling block before my own students. As I was reading though I felt like I was in the zone, remembering to slow myself and pause to give my students time to take notes. Walking around the room I saw them writing correct, cogent responses that drew on details from the story. It was a big feeling of relief and pride, a sort of anecdote to yesterday's multiple-choice. Now I can only hope that tomorrow's extended response feels more like today than yesterday.
