Reflection: Student Ownership Plotting our Historical Fiction Story - Section 1: Lesson Opener


My goal with a graphic organizer is always for the students to eventually not have to rely on it. For this unit since every plot diagram has a slant to it, I will not be able to ween them off of it. In order for them to truly have student ownership over creating their own plot sequence, I could have them create one while reading a story or draft another plot diagram of the same genre.
