Reflection: Pacing Temptation in the Garden: Analyzing the Serpent's Rhetorical Strategies in Paradise Lost - Section 4: Debrief of Artwork Analysis

 

We really ran short on time with this section of class today. Students were so detailed in their analysis that we weren't able to spend very much time debriefing their observations. The good news is, I was able to assess their ability to analyze the artwork through a very short dialogue because I heard much of what I needed to hear from them while they were working in their small groups. They did very well with considering the archetypal colors as well as the diverse imagery presented by each artist as they made inferences about what each unique artistic choice might mean.

Pacing is not always my biggest concern in regards to how a lesson is going, but today I felt like it was more important to move forward and give them the time to read and analyze the next section of text, so I had to gauge their understanding differently than I had initially intended to.
