Reflection: Intervention and Extension Dystopian Elements in Our World (Day 1 of 3) - Section 1: SSR


I really liked having this opportunity to dive into the 1984 with the kids today. It helped me to informally gauge how they were doing with comprehension and to give a little pep talk to those who were either behind or struggling. I think the kids appreciated the more focused attention too. They asked great questions about the plot and seemed happy that I was helping them to "skip" a section of the book.

One word of warning. I have read this novel many, many times. That makes it hard for me to remember where particular things happen since I am looking at the story as a complete thing instead of the chunks that my kids are reading. I accidentally gave something away today when I was talking to the kids when I asked a leading question about one of the characters. Oops. The good news is they will read about it in tonight's reading, but shame on me. I need to be more careful if I do this again with the other books =).
