Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Setting - A Mini-Lesson Using Trickster Tales (Day 2) - Section 3: Assessment


I noticed that students were more adept at identifying more aspects of a story’s setting. Their main focus was the location at the beginning of the year, i.e., Mulan takes place in China. During this lesson, students were more specific. Before, they simply would have said the story takes place outside. At this time, they were able to identify the setting as the tiger’s cage during the day.
