Reflection: Literature: Analyzing Poetry is a Multi-Step Process ( Day1 of 2) - Section 3: Share your annotations and discuss


In today's lesson I grouped students according to their gender.  The beginning of this unit focuses on literature dealing with gender issues.  I've always enjoyed spearating the students into these gender groups while reading these poems, but am not sure I will next year.  It is nice for them to have common peers to share the ideas of these poems, but I wonder if they might get more out of them if they are mixed.  In tomorrow's lesson, after we switch the poems, I will have the groups combine and see how it goes.
