Reflection: Pacing Nature's Fury: Performance Task - Section 1: Cue Set


Instead of getting up and sharing with our post-it note groups, I had scholars remain in their seats and do a whip around in their table group.  I had them remain seated so that it would be faster.  The Cue Set should be a quick way to get scholars ready for the lesson.  Getting into post-it note groups is a better strategy for a guided practice rather than a Cue Set.  

Scholars did a great job of sharing how the pieces of literature were similar.  Click here to check out a video of scholars sharing!
