Reflection: Lesson Planning Levels of Thinking: An Introduction to Archetypes - Section 2: Archetype Gallery Creation


There are so many ways to introduce archetypes...and so many archetypes to introduce. I tried to limit the archetypes that we worked with today to those that I know will show up in Othello and other literature we will study this year. I also tried to pick things that the students could easily interpret or apply to their own world. It seemed to work well (thanks Disney!) given the background knowledge my group brought to the process. I hope that it will continue to go well as they move to a study of these symbols in writing.
