Reflection: Flexibility Mae Jemison: Using Complex text with topic, main ideas & supporting details - Section 5: Independent Practice


My ELL co-teacher was out with a sick child today, so we did not do independent rotations.  Instead, we gradually released the guided practice (Scholars identified the main idea of each paragraph and I modeled how to think about the main idea of the page, then scholars completed the rest of the pages in partnerships).  During the partner practice time, I pulled the yellow group to the front to support their thinking.
