Classroom recitation, defined as a series of teacher questions, each eliciting a student response and sometimes a teacher reaction to that response. I usually give posing questions which call for speculative, inferential and evaluative thinking. I get different reactions from my students during recitation and most of the time they amuse me; I can relate to them, I was a student too once upon a time.
I remember whenever my teachers would start calling students for questioning, I would avoid having eye contact with him/her and pray to God he/she would spare me. I can still recall how I would nervously scan through my text books and notebooks hoping that the page would miraculously open to answer the question asked. I would suddenly feel uncomfortable, restlessly twitching and turning on my seat, wanting to leave the classroom without any reason or excuse to tell the teacher. Ahhh...those were the days. And now for my revenge...bwahahaha....
***This is one of my favorite writing exercise for my students: "IF I COULD..." . The Soul-Seeker asked me in her blog to do this exercise myself, and like a compliant student, I did the exercise without complaints. Here's my answer:
If I could be in one place right now... it would be in Wonderland where I could release all my inhibitions and make impossible things possible.
If I could give something of myself to my friends... I would give them my compassion for the special children so there would be more people in the world to understand the exceptionalilty of special children.
If I could take some people somewhere...I would take them in my classroom so they too can experience the miracles that happen there everyday.
If I could make one dream come true... it would be world peace! (sabay kaway pang Ms. Congeniality)
If I could do real magic...I would make poverty in the world disappear.
Your turn! I get to invite 5 blogger friends to do the same activity...

***After another day, Nao tagged me to do almost the same thing but with different prompts:
It's good when u have... someone to pamper and spoil you all the time (hi hubby!)
The best part of love is... when it is reciprocated.
Step out of...the kitchen when it is flaming hot (you don't wanna be roasted with your chicken).
I had a sly smile when...hubby prepares a romantic dinner with wine (what happens next is up to you).
Turn it on and...turn it loud and wild (the music when my daughter and I are dancing)
Don't mess with my...laptop computer, it has all my important files (or else!)
I love the way I feel when...I get what I want.
There were lots of... ups and downs in my life, but I don't regret any of it.
The moment I laid eyes on... Reiner, I knew he's the one! ('ala The Matrix :D)
Walking down the isle... is completely different than anything I've ever done!
It's best to... be happy for 30 minutes of your life than never having to experience it at all.
When u find the right... person to spend you whole life with never let that person go, or you will be forever wandering looking for someone like him/her.
Understanding the dos & dont's of... love is like understanding how Einstein came up with his formula E=mc2.
The worst music I've heard... is when I was singing in the bathroom while in despair.
Large bold prints can seem...overwhelming and too loud for me.
Now I get to tag 5 blogger friends too...
