Reflection: Pacing Maniac Macgee: Character Sketch - Section 3: Guided Practice


I ended up skipping this step because the teaching strategy was longer.  Also, I found that since I did such explicit modeling all of the scholars were ready to apply this skill independently.  During the teaching strategy, I did a few check for understandings.  For example, I would say, "In the text it says that Maniac Macgee is scrawny.  Where would I put that?  Put the number 1 up for physical trait or the number 2 up for personality trait."  I quickly discovered that scholars had no trouble AT ALL distinguishing between the two.  Therefore, I knew that I could safely skip over the guided practice and jump right into the independent practice.
