Reflection: Checks for Understanding History and Cultural Identity: Vocabulary for Maus by Art Spiegelman - Section 4: Closing: Shut Down--Tomorrow is Another Day


If you look at the first page of this document Student work sample pre-reading Maus, it shows that the students got the definitions.  However, I ended up giving them the definitions in the powerpoint.  Even though I can see these students have the definitions I cannot assess if they achieved the work independently or just copied from the powerpoint.  Ultimately, I made the decision that it was more important to have the vocabulary than to assess their ability to use the internet as a tool for looking up literary and historical terms.
