Reflection: Debate Analyzing Mother-Son Relationship Through Close Reading and Discussion - Section 2: Building Knowledge


Asking my students to share which character's values do they align with and why, created a spontaneous debate between two students RL.9-10.3.  As I was filming the interaction I wasn't sure where the debate would end up but in seeing the sincerity of each student's comments,  I decided to give them the freedom to express themselves in their own way. Looking back at the video I was glad I did.  What do you think?
