Reflection: What's the Resolution? - Section 2: Setting a Purpose


Like in any lesson, this can be altered to suit your needs. While I find value in working through plot points out of direct sequence, you may find that moving straight through makes more sense for your students. Either is fine! No matter how you choose to do it, I would recommend that your writing lessons mirror your reading lessons. If you taught students to “decode” the plot in a linear fashion, it might be best to teach them to write in this way as well. I believe that students’ understanding of any topic is stronger when multiple connections are made.
