Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Fox and Giraffe Informational Paragraph - Section 3: Partner Work


I think there might be too much covered in this lesson.  If I had it to do again I would break this lesson down into smaller more manageable lessons. The three lessons I wish I could break this one into are one on topic sentences, one on supporting details, and one on closings.

Another option I have is to teach these lessons in a small group. It might make more sense to actually do this to do the three lessons in a small group, so I can connect more closely with the students. In a small group setting I find that students are able to ask questions, and get more personal attention. These are things that really hep them understand a skill.
