Reflection: High Expectations "Watch Out for Your Little Sister" - Section 2: Close Reading


This is the first text we read in class.  I did this simple but enticing text together so my expectations are demonstrated.  In this way, students realize that I do not just expect them to quickly read a text and be able to answer questions, but rather I expect them to become involved in the text and apply knowledge of literary elements to the text.
