Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Maniac Macgee: Character Sketch - Section 4: Independent Practice


I did not require that scholars create a paragraph for Amanda.  The standard is more about comparing and contrasting, and I realized that the paragraph would be great for character traits, but that the foldable accomplished the purpose of identifying character traits.  I would prefer that scholars spend more time on their foldables and write a 3 paragraph essay comparing and contrasting the two characters, rather than on this paragraph.
