Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Myth Madness: Which Is Your Favorite? - Section 4: Demonstrate Skills

 

While circulating today and assisting students as needed, it seemed that many students, when they got Slides 4 and 5, were confused on how to complete this section:

"A character trait ___________ has is ____________ because in the text, __________________."

Now, when I prepared this template, I created it so that the name of the character went into the first blank, the trait selected went into the second blank, and the evidence from the text went into the third blank.  However, I as I worked with students today, many times students had written in the character trait they selected in the first blank and then were not sure what to do in the second blank.  I think may need to revise how I've set this template up, because quite a few students had the same issue.  If you plan to use the template as I've posted it, just be sure to spend an extra couple of seconds on that part with your students so that they understand what to do.  I think I may add some tiny words beneath each blank.  This way the students will know where to put the "Character's Name", the "Trait" and the "Evidence"!
