Reflection: Flexibility Analyzing "real" characters by planning a "Fakebook" Day 1 of 2 - Section 3: Application: Applying knowledge of character development to SSR texts


Once we got into the lab and students started working, I realized that they could not save their Fakebook pages without creating two posts. Students were spending much too much time looking for pictures and no time working on their posts. In hindsight, I might require ALL students to draft out a certain number of posts before beginning the project. Also, I had to stop their work in the lab and require all students to complete at least two posts and save them and their link before moving forward with the pictures and other aspects of the project. This meant, I had to get each student to stop looking at the screens and look at me, while I explained that the posts needed to be done NOW. Okay, I'm cute, but I'm no match for a computer! This is something that I will explain in more detail if I ever do this lesson again.
