Reflection: Exit Tickets Analyzing How the Protagonist Deals with Traumatic Challenges - Section 4: Wrap Up


I used this formative assessment of their literary logs as an exit ticket.  before they leave I wanted to have them demonstrate their understanding of the event and its impact on the protagonist.  I was impressed by my students' responses. The sample work that I included illustrates how this students correctly analyzed the event with text dependent evidence.  I will use this organizer in future lessons to help my students dive deeper into the complexity of a character actions and thoughts.  I'd like to hear any other methods you've used for this purpose.
