Reflection: Flexibility What Kind of Person Would do That?: Analyze Characters in Texts - Section 1: Introduction


In order to make strong connections to the importance of a strategy, you sometimes have to come up with personal, relevant, and recent stories that students can connect to. The closer the experience to the student's own experience, the better. I chose the story about my nephew because I talk about them often and they know a lot about him. Many of them also have younger sibling about the same age that may have similar experiences. 

Once students are connected, its it easier to show why a strategy is more important that just the day that you are teaching it.
