Reflection: Intervention and Extension Tasmania Information - Section 4: Partner Work


The below basic student work show how students are not sure. My questioning is also lower level thinking. I should not be asking yes or no questions. I need to say, "Why is the last sentence not a good closing?"

The basic student work show that the student did not have time to finish his paragraph, and we need to work on creating topic sentences that connect to the details in the text.  It seems like students who are having trouble with this are creating topic sentences that are either too broad or too specific.
