Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Who's Right? Comparing Points of View - Section 3: Fair is Fair: Wrapping Up


My students were so engaged in the discussion over which character was justified in their actions that I wish I would have had time to insert a "trial" of sorts to let students argue whether or not Charlie's mom was right in putting him in the time out chair.  I've never done a lesson like that before, but with CCSS, it would fit perfectly and I've already got it mapped out in my mind for next year or for another text this year where it would fit.  

Coming up with ideas after the fact is a double edged sword.  It's great for my students next year, but I feel like I've missed an opportunity for my students this year to practice those higher level thinking skills in a topic they were so interested in.  Unfortunately, due to time constraints in my building, I can't even squeeze in a project of this magnitude, but I will file it away for future use either this year or next.
