Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Who is Esperanza and what shapes her identity in "The House on Mango Street"? - Section 3: Application: Charting Vignettes


I was delusional in thinking that my students would be able to get through the vignette worksheets and do a gallery walk for this lesson. NOT A SINGLE GROUP GOT DONE! I needed to revamp the lesson and do something else on Day 2.

I noticed that many of them weren't reading the sections of the texts to which they were assigned, so it was time to slow it down. Since they didn't finish, I collected their vignette organizers and worked on my plan to finish up next class. Check out Day 2 to see how I re-structured the lesson.
