Reflection: Student Ownership "Daedalus and Icarus" Plot Line - Section 2: Design Interpretive Plot Line


This is one activity that even the struggling readers are successful at demonstrating their comprehension the myth.  Often their illustrations are more detailed interpretations than I would expect.  Sometimes it takes students awhile to get started, but once they have a plan, it moves along.

I do not allow students to cut out illustrations.  However, I remind them that I am not an artist; I am grading on the effort given and the overall retelling of the story.  Someone always asks about stick figures;  I do allow them but I tell them to put clothes on them because I know they draw adorable stick figures.
