Reflection: Pacing How'd he do that? Comparing Written Memoir to Graphic Memoir - Section 5: Wrap up and Next Steps


I include this section in all my lesson plans because in a perfect world I would have time to wrap up what happened in class that day. This rarely happens for me. I usually run out of time and am scrambling to get kids back into their seats with their desks in order and collecting any papers that have been completed for the day. On this particular day, we discussed the text until the bell rang and I had to yell over their shuffling to tell them to hold onto the papers until the next day.

My intentions will remain, however, because I think it is good to spend the last few minutes of class wrapping up and reviewing what it is we have learned for the day. Fingers crossed that by the end of the year, I will have a success story or two to share about this wrap up section of my lessons.
