Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Two Way Mirror: Revealing information about the narrator and other characters in "The House on Mango Street" - Section 4: Application: Independent Practice


Shortly after students began working together, I realized that I should have allowed them to preview the bottom questions on the chart because they would be more likely to collect convincing evidence about Esperanza and other characters in her neighborhood if they knew what type of question they would need to answer. I would suggest having your students preview the questions so that they are ready to roll with their evidence collection.
