Reflection: Data Analysis Two mediums, one topic: Comparing the treatment of setting in "The Most Dangerous Game" and a movie clip - Section 6: Closure


I noticed that the students did a fantastic job with the charting of figurative language that describes the setting and creates a mood, BUT the comparison paragraphs for the closure paragraphs were underwhelming. Some students did a great job of including details from the text and the movie, but others did not include ANY details, and I was rather frustrated. As I reflected on possible reasons, I noted that students did not have enough time at the end of the period and rushed through that part. Instead of 10 minutes, they had about five---which clearly wasn't enough.
