Lesson Reflection

What went well?

 

Scholars were successful because they had spent time making T2S connections with the character and they understood the problem and the solution.   

What would you change?

 

Make sure scholars are thinking of advice with the events of the story in mind. Character’s should reference their own experiences in their advice.  

What needs explanation?

 

Remind scholars that the advice must be something the character would actually say (not just completely made up)
