Reflection: Lesson Planning Firehouse Dogs: Make Meaning of the Text - Section 2: The UNRAVEL Strategy


In class the previous day, we read an article about women firefighters. It prompted a lively class discussion and one student raised the question about the association between Dalmatians and firehouses.  In an effort to present students with text that captures their interest, to let them know that our discussions have value and to demonstrate the satisfaction of research, I found an article that answers that question.  They were surprised and delighted that I had followed up on their request.
