Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Evaluative Questions - Pick Your Side and Argue About Informational Text - Section 4: Teacher's Turn


When I planned this lesson, I had collected several books about The Declaration of Independence. As I taught this lesson, I realized that the text seemed difficult, but I didn't realize that I had grabbed the wrong book until I went back to my resources. The books listed in materials is the correct book, but you may notice that the worksheets that the students filled out are about the alternate book, The Declaration of Independence, which is a 3rd grade level text.
