Reflection: Checks for Understanding Sequencing Myths - Section 2: Independent Practice

 

Students have a tendency to rely upon memory when sequencing events, which results in incorrect answers at times. However, when I direct them to the text, they are able identify the correct response. I decided to require students to highlight story events before, or as, they were placing them in order. This forced them to refer to the text to verify when a particular event took place in relation to another. This increased the number initial correct responses.
