Reflection: Grappling with Complexity The Big Bad Wolf in Number the Stars - Section 2: T-Chart Note Taking and Comparing

 

As I walked around the room, I noticed that my students were struggling to make detailed notes. They had some basic ideas fro both characters and I realized that they needed my help to think deeper. I asked the class to give me their attention again, and explained what I saw so now we work together. 

I start by asking prompting questions about Annemarie: What was in the basket? Where was she going? Why? What feelings was she feeling? How do you know? What was she afraid of?

I then ask the same types of questions for Little Red. This side goes much smoother. They have a basic idea of what the expectation is and they are ready with answers this time.
