Reflection: Grappling with Complexity "The Lady of Shalott" Day Three - Section 2: Small-Group Discussion Debriefing


I think the activity was effective because students had to analyze and synthesize their interpretations and the literary techniques used by Tennyson to convey them.  However, I am not sure if I did enough.  Should I have had students write a literary analysis essay as a follow-up? We have engaged in literary analysis all year, but has it been enough?
