Lesson Reflection

What went well?

 

Scholars were successful because they had spent time going back into the text finding evidence. Also, they had talked about a character’s feelings at the beginning and the end. 

What would you change?

 

Push scholars to think about what caused the change, the turning point for the character. 

What needs explanation?

 

Make sure scholars understand that they are looking for a character feeling at the beginning and a separate character feeling at the end.
