Reflection: Student Grouping Close Reading with the Secret Life of Walter Mitty - Section 2: Active Engagement

 

One other way for students to complete this close reading is to decide with a partner a theme they both believe is true about the text, then decide together which part of the text they will reread. This grouping can be used for students to help each other with understanding or to get a healthy debate going over the best evidence and categories.
