Reflection: High Quality Task Use a Character Sketch to Describe the Grandfather in Grandfather's Journey - Section 5: Closure

 

I allowed scholars to orally present their character sketches by reading them as they spoke using a microphone.  This helped them in developing their speaking and listening skills as they explained key ideas and their own understanding of those ideas.  This was a high quality task because it required students to read, write, and speak about character traits of the grandfather in "Grandfather's Journey."  The information they shared had to be grounded in textual evidence.  Students held each other accountable by asking questions of one another as they shared their character sketches.
