Reflection: An Introduction to Myths (Day 1) - Section 2: Independent Practice

 

It was not easy for students to identify the natural event in the story. I realized the concept was new to them and it would take additional practice. I used this information to the guide the next day’s instruction. I decided to give students examples of events that occur in nature at the beginning of the lesson and do another guided lesson before having them work independently.
