Reflection: Checks for Understanding Analyzing "real" characters with a "Fakebook" Day 2 of 2 - Section 3: Application


Since the last time I checked, more students are including appropriate statements as posts and comments on the Fakebook page, but I still have some students that are doing plot summaries. One of the ways that I helped them correct these plot summaries was to ask them to describe the character during the action they had included in the post. Once they gave me those descriptions, I told them to add the descriptions to their posts and include the plot information in the textual evidence. This proved useful to many of them.
