Reflection: Accountability A Close Read of Grandfather's Journey - Section 4: Closure

 

When we shared information students learned about the life experiences of their grandparents, we found out interesting facts such as 1 student's (Jayla's) grandmother was a nurse to James Earl Ray (the convicted assassin of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.) and another student's (Brandon's) relative was civil rights leader Medgar Evers.  My students said they really enjoyed the opportunity to connect and get to know their grandparents better.  Use of the Accountable Talk practices helped to ensure a purposeful, coherent, and productive group discussion.  The Accountable Talk supported student accountability to accurate knowledge, rigorous thinking, and the learning community.

  My scholars wrote some very intriguing interview questions for their grandparents.
