Reflection: Checks for Understanding Who? Where? What? - Section 4: Assessment


When I reviewed the student work using the checklist, I noticed that many of the students only listed one setting. In actuality the story took place in two locations. The first event happened in the sky and then the subsequent events took place in the desert here on earth. The grand finale of the story place back in the sky. 

There were only a few students who picked up on this. This shows me that I need to review story setting with the students. I will make sure to mention the fact that story's can take place in more than one setting. For example, the classic Cinderella takes place in Cinderella's home and another major event occurs at the royal palace; hence two settings.

I will review the topic of story settings with the students during the reading of another story.
