Reflection: Grappling with Complexity Who's At The Door? Use Images to Find out! - Section 5: Students Take a Turn


It was a challenge for my students to use imaging and adjectives to describe the characters with words. They wanted to use common vocabulary such as  'bad', but I really wanted more language. This book is complex and the language is really upper level. I'm asking the kids to use adjectives to describe characters and am looking for higher level language.

We ended up doing the last 2 images as a group, because that made sense with my students, who have language challenges. This is the whiteboard prompts that I used with them.
