Reflection: Intervention and Extension Asking the Right Questions with Mason-Dixon Memory - Section 2: Active Engagement


When we got to the second stop, my students were really struggling with the two different plot lines in the story. I had them stop and jot two different plot lines; one for Clifton, one for Dondre in help them differentiate between the two. Also I had two students who really wanted to read, so I had one read Clifton's parts and one read Dondre's parts. 

  More plot lines, more problems!
