Lesson Reflection

What went well?

 

Scholars were successful because they spent the previous day making a text-to-self connection. 

What would you change?

 

Make sure scholars are focused on the specific feeling of excitement. It’s important that scholars have practice making specific text-to-self connections.

What needs explanation?

 

Make sure scholars make connections that are substantial and about the feelings- i.e. not about physical traits etc. If they give you a superficial connection, guide them to think about the way Splat is feeling.
