Reflection: Data Analysis Native American Petroglyphs - Opinion Writing Project - Section 2: Opinion Writing Project


Reading through these papers, I was able to catch and clear up a misconception I found within a student's essay.  The misconception was this:

"I feel that Native Americans can understand petroglyphs because I feel they are related tothe Indians."

Those are the moments that make me want to laugh and cry all at the same time.  Fortunately I was able to pull the student aside and explain to her that Native Americans and Indians are both terms referencing the same  people.  I thought I made that clear at the beginning of the unit, but apparently not.
