Reflection: Checks for Understanding Answering Text-Dependent Questions to Understand Life in Harlem During the Harlem Renaissance - Section 2: Building Knowledge

 

The words I used from my students feedback were: advent, impetus, influx, and stringent, transients.  I found that several students knew  the definition most of the words after I used it in a sentence.  To bring relevancy to the words, I used sentences that I felt related to their lives. For example for the word influx I said, "Yesterday we had an influx of several new students from Vietnam who had recently moved to Springfield."
