Reflection: Modeling Island of the Blue Dolphins: Would You Rather....Be a Ghalas-At or an Aleut? - Section 2: Teaching Strategy


If I were to teach this lesson again, I would more explicitly model how to support my opinion with evidence from the text.  I did not explicitly model this skill and I noticed that my scholars really struggled with using evidence to PROVE their thinking.  We have not yet done much opinion writing this year and I think this is why I saw such a deficit.
