Reflection: High Quality Task Very Quiet Cricket - Section 2: Procedure


I like the idea of a chart being made to represent the information on the student page, but I think I would have changed some of what was being asked.  It was very easy for most students to recognize the characters and setting, but I am not sure that the third question involving the egg really worked.  Maybe the third box could have been involving the main topic or the author and illustrators.  Another idea would be to sequence some of the events.  In general, I was happy with the assignment, but I would have liked to have given it more depth.
