Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Rosa Parks: Analyzing Complex Text Structure Continued - Section 1: Cue Set


Scholars loved the comic.  It is so relevant to current events too (since the government is currently shutdown and we may have to cancel our field trip to DC as a result).  Scholars were able to easily see that the comic was organized by cause and effect and needed very little support to analyze it in this way.  The visual representation of the abstract ideas helped scholars to understand what the comic was about and therefore helped them to identify the correct text structure.  I would definitely use a comic again, it was a great way to start this lesson! Students are much more engaged and less intimidated by a comic, this enhances participation and helps all kids feel successful before we start the lesson.  

  Great cue set!
