Reflection: Story Elements Introduction Part 3 - Section 2: Independent Work


In order for this lesson to work out time-wise, preparation is crucial.  Students must understand the importance of having read their story and competed the plot diagram before they come to class today. If only a select few did the work yesterday they will end up doing the work in class today and it derails the purpose.  I generally walk around early and make note of any incomplete who get break detention. It is standard procedure in my classroom that not having your homework results in a loss of break privileges. Three of these result in an after school detention at my school, so after the first few weeks of school I rarely have issues with this.
