Reflection: High Expectations Close Read: A Day's Work - Craft and Structure - Section 2: Second Read - Focusing in on Abuelo's Reaction


These close read discussions are exactly what were missing from my elementary school literature lessons.  We didn't really discuss literature until I got to high school.  All reading was in elementary was reading a text and answering basic questions.  With the CCSS we are now creating higher expectations for our students and they are meeting or exceeding those expectations.  Today's discussion was no exception.  The students continue to amaze me!

  High Expectations: WOW!!!
