Thinking about Thinking
by Mr. Sheehy
While reading a short story from their literature books, my freshmen wrote their thinking as they read. When they finished, I asked them to examine their comments and tell me in a sentence or two what they thought about their thinking. Their response:
- I like the way I think. There is humor, yet it is serious.
- I really like this. I think I am a good thinker.
- My thinking is kind of strange. It is sort of connected to what the story is about.
- I think that my thinking is on task, surprisingly. It’s pretty good.
- Thinking helps a little.
