Reflection: Standards Alignment Analyzing Story Elements as a Whole - Section 2: Reviewing Story Elements


I'm breaking my protocol for teaching a new standard here. Normally, I give multiple practices before assigning a summative, but here, we don't even answer the questions for the complete standard. On one hand, this may be short-changing my students. On the other, this may be building off their strengths.

Past experience teaches me that my students are far more familiar with literature standards than informational standards. Once they have reviewed terms, they are generally able to analyze well. I'm banking on that now. Of course, if I pushed students too fast, we can always circle back to these standards again in our next unit.
