Reflection: Lesson Planning The Influence of Character on Narrative...and Vis a Versa: Discussion (Day 2 of 2) - Section 3: Independent review of gallery walk/comparison notes


Unfortunately, this was the second half of a lesson that started on a Friday. I hate to have lessons span a weekend, but it was inevitable due to faulty timing. I am working with a new teaching partner this year and he and I have yet to find our groove. Timing in teaching is delicate art as has taken longer than usual to find that sweet spot this fall. I know it will come...and thankfully the students have been tracking with us anyway.

We encouraged them to utilize the posters if they didn't feel like they had enough information. No one used the posters, which is further proof to me that we could have just sorted the panels and skipped the poster-making. It would have helped with the timing and I think they would have come to the same conclusions.
