Reflection: Lesson Planning Folktales: Locating the Introduction - Section 3: Partner Practice


Before today’s lesson, students were given copies of the text they would be using during partner practice. They read the text in its entirety independently one time simply for enjoyment and to become familiar with the text. I feel that this is a necessary first step when asking students to construct meaning from a passage. Students should always be given the opportunity to read (or listen to) a text once without a specific task in mind so that they have a foundation upon which they can build greater understanding and practice critical thinking during re-readings.
