Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Movie vs. Dramatic Adaptation Part 4 & Reviews - Section 2: Lesson


After the initial shock of where this lesson went, I was so pumped I just ran with it.  In retrospect, I would develop this lesson differently.  

First, I would have my students trace the claims and evidence supplied by the reviewers and categorize them - all comments made about the actors in one "box" or column for example.

Then, we could do a more accurate comparison of their presentations. This idea comes from one of my students who started a "where's their evidence" discussion that day.

Additionally, I would include "tone" and "word choice" in the comparison.  This is something I hadn't been thinking about and as I shared in the video flipped the lesson on it's head.
