Reflection: Checks for Understanding Closely Looking at Conflicts in Fences, Act 1 Scene 4, to Analyze Character Development - Section 2: Warmup


Giving Directions for Tasks:

During the lesson, I am conducting on-going assessment of my students by observing how they are completing tasks,  listening to the questions they are asking and the comments they are sharing with their peers. In addition, I pay attention to the comments they make to me as well as the questions they are asking me.

Today, I noticed one of my students did not give a personal response for this task (Warmup#6). She responded by discussing the characters in the text. I spoke with her and she re-did the assignment (Warmup#7).

At the end of the lesson, I took the time to look at my directions, and I realize that I need to make my directions clearer and more explicit. So, I am looking into finding clearer ways to give directions as well as how to organize Warmup/Do Now tasks so that students understand the expectations of each type of activity for this part of the lesson.
