Lesson Reflection

What went well?

 

Scholars were successful because they had experience making text-to-self connections.  

What would you change?

 

Scholars had more difficulty with this feeling because it’s not one they talk about as much. Make sure you give them other examples if they are struggling. 

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.
