Reflection: Adjustments to Practice The Whipping Boy - In Depth Description of a Character, Setting, or Event - Section 3: Finding Details Within the Text


My students love using the white boards and markers and some of them seem to be more engaged while using them.  That is why I made whiteboards one of the choices for taking notes. Unfortunately, one of the student's notes were erased during recess.  We are not sure how, but I will probably not have the students take notes on the whiteboards again in the future.  The poor girl was in tears because all her hard work was gone.  Be careful using dry erase boards.
