Reflection: Modeling Discovering Morals Through Fables - Section 2: Guiding the Learning


Students in my class didn't pick up enough details for their settings. They gave the stream, and a tree in the first and a safari and tree in the second - not a setting that would create a visual picture. I needed to prod them further to say what else is hinted or stated in the fables. Finally we got details like a kingdom with a forest far away on its land, and a Fall day because the leaf was plucked easily, etc.

My suggestion is to question each section and even have them do a quick sketch if you have the time to help them understand that each each component of text has an importance
