Reflection: Checks for Understanding Synthesizing Events = The Big Idea of the Story - Section 4: Share


When I checked the students' work the next day most of the students wrote the big idea was that "One person can make a difference.  A few said things like "It is important to have hope."  I was surprised that one student wrote "Always keep your stuff with you."  To reteach, I will have her reread the story to herself and think about the big idea of the story might be.  Then I will have a conversation with her.
