Reflection: Checks for Understanding Analyzing Characters and Symbols in Act 1 Scene 2 of A Raisin in the Sun - Section 4: Quiz 1


Occasionally I will put activities into my lesson and not have enough time to complete them.  This is what happened during this formative assessment.  I stopped students before some of them completed all the answers on the quiz to give us some time to review them and fill in the answers as they are discussed.  

One question many of the students were unsure of how to answer was question #7, Mama's insisting that Walter talk to his wife before leaving the apartment.  Some students felt Mama had difficulty with staying neutral and not getting involved with Walter's marriage.  Other's understood that Walter was being distracted and need to focus on the issue his wife was dealing with but expressed concern that Mama needed to tell him.  This told me that more discussion about Young's family structure and how they chose to deal with internal problems that arise between all members of the family.
