Reflection: Checks for Understanding Writing a Narrative to Develop Structured Event Sequences in "The Sniper." - Section 4: Wrap Up


The students example of the quick write activity is one that I felt good about because this student not only demonstrated insight and understanding but also was asking a relevant question about England's involvement in Ireland.  But here's the challenge with reluctant learners...I asked this student for extra credit to research more about this war and England's involvement. The student responded by saying, "I have no time for extra work."  Hopefully by the end of the year she will have changed her attitude about doing extra work.
