Reflection: The Influence of Character on Narrative...and Vis a Versa: Discussion (Day 2 of 2) - Section 2: Comprehension check from homework


I had very varied scores on my quizzes. It is always very obvious who has been reading vs. who hasn't read a thing, but there were also quite a few students who have obviously read something, but haven't read as closely as I'd like them to read.

Based on these quizzes, I am going to change how I do my final assessment. The students have been doing journals for each day's reading. I think I will create a seminar planner that focuses in on a specific section of the text so I can assess their ability to read closely as well as synthesize some of the larger themes and ideas of the text.
