Reflection: Checks for Understanding An Introduction to Trickster Tales (Day 1) - Section 3: Assessment


It is important to ask students to identify the specific trick versus asking, “How was the problem solved?” For example, when asked the latter, some students simply stated the problem was solved by tricking the Coyote. This answer (tricking someone) would apply to all trickster tales. It does not indicate the student is able to identify the trick. Upon further questioning, some students were not able to state the trick. They knew the problem and they were able to articulate the solution, but not the specific trick that solved it.
