Reflection: Checks for Understanding Perceptions v. Circumstance: Target Organizer for "The Wreck of the Hesperus" - Section 5: Closure


We didn't have time to do a written closure today because we spent a lot of time digging in to the text. At the end of the period, I posed the closure question and had one student respond. This isn't the ideal way to do the closure because I only know if one person understands the difference between perception and circumstance, but sometimes we just don't have time. I can improve this by watching my time more closely and ensuring that we make time for a written closure each day, but this is easier said than done.
