Reflection: Modeling Franklin in the dark - Section 3: Writing Activity


I find that in order for my to get good writing out of my students I have to model and review the information several times.  Good strategies sometimes take more time.  Every step is broken down and explained and modeled.  My students should have no doubt about what my expectations were for this writing activity.  I believe this lesson met the CCSS that it was intended.  This was a long lesson, but the topic kept them focused.
