Reflection: Adjustments to Practice The Influence of Character on Narrative...and Vis a Versa: Panel Analysis (Day 1 of 2) - Section 3: Panel analysis and graphic organizer creation


I didn't get to step 5--we did a gallery walk instead!

The students really struggled with sorting the panels. They wanted to know the "right" way to sort. I wandered around the room to help them with their thinking, but tried really hard to stay out of their thinking to see what they could come up with. The results were really interesting. The characterization groups were very unique in their posters while the narrative groups all created timelines.

I would organize this differently in the future. I would not have them make posters--I think the sorting was the more important part of the activity. I would then use that extra time to make sure they had time to talk in small groups and look for the relationship between characterization and narrative.

The Influence of Character on Narrative...and Vis a Versa: Panel Analysis (Day 1 of 2)

Unit 2: Narrative Reading and Writing: Persepolis and Memoir
Lesson 2 of 11

Objective: SWBAT analyze characterization OR narrative techniques from Persepolis by creating a graphic organizer to be used in student led discussions.

Big Idea: Characterization and narrative often work hand in hand in a narrative text. Looking at how each works separately then discussing their relationship will allow students to comprehend text at a much deeper level.
