Lesson Reflection

What went well?

 

Scholars were successful because they have been talking about characters and they know how to go back into a text and find evidence to support what they know about a character.

What would you change?

 

Have scholars explain how the characters have changed based on what they know about a character’s feelings and traits from the beginning to the end.

What needs explanation?

 

Make sure scholars use character traits/feelings to explain how characters changed.
