Reflection: Intervention and Extension Theme - Section 1: Prompt


I realized that at this point most students are able to interpret the poem without any hints as provided on the worksheet before the questions.  For my honors classes, I remove the “hints” given in the directions.  However, for those students struggling with figurative language, I feel the hints enabled them to be independently successful.   The cognitive development of some students is still at the literal level; this will help guide them with interpretation.
