Reflection: Connection to Prior Knowledge In Eye of The Beholder - Section 1: Advanced Organizer


If I could have made the noise that accompanies the "light bulb" when a brilliant connection is made in class, I would have been making that noise all day!  While reading the two stories, the students were connecting the two stories without prompting.  This demonstrated to me they were inferring and already analyzing text on their own.  SUCCESS!  I also saw multiple students using the skill we have been practicing of marking up the text.  I was very impressed to see the students carry over and apply the skill.  They are seeing the benefits of this skill and using it to their advantage. 

The last and final light bulb went off when a student made the connection to first-person point of view with first-person pronouns.  They recalled the pronouns and were able to use that information to analyze text for point of view! It was a big day for making connections with prior knowledge and building those bridges between concepts and our learning.  It was a great teachable moment to refresh our memory on pronouns.
