Reflection: Complex Tasks Introduction to Native American Literature - Section 4: Students Work in Small Groups To Examine One Era in U.S. Native American Policy


The language used in the pages I assigned to students was quite challenging. I spent a lot of time defining words for them. In one sentence alone, I was asked for a definition of "abysmal" and "exacerbated." Still, I believe that students were able to understand enough to be able to present to their classmates. However, this lets me know that I will have to fill in information during their presentations tomorrow and clarify throughout.
