Reflection: Advanced Students Cause and Effect with "A Bad Case of Stripes" Day One - Section 1: Teacher Notes and Materials


     After teaching this lesson, I analyzed my student work.  I know I had already had the sentence stems written for my students for the sentence writing part.  I know that this is how I can still differentiate for my struggling students.  This will help them in their sentence writing because they need that support.  However, I realized that I was offering too much support for my advanced students by offering this stem for them.  I am always encouraging my students to speak and write in complete sentences.  If I don't make my advanced students write the whole sentence, I am not allowing them the opportunity to respond to questions and write the response in a full sentence.  So, I went back and made plain lined paper for the packets for my advanced students.  Next time I teach this lesson I will make two types of packets.  I will have the sentences with the stems for my struggling students and packets with plain paper for my advanced students.
