Reflection: Gradual Release Put Yourself in Someone Else's Shoes! - Section 1: Cue Set


Scholars struggled a bit with just watching the video & re-writing it, so we broke it up a bit.  We watched the video straight through at first, and then we watched it a second time, pausing after the first minute, second minute and third minute.  During each pause, we discussed how a Loyalist might feel when describing the event that we just watched.  Then we brainstormed images that would communicate how the Loyalist may have described the event.  Finally, scholars had two minutes to draw the part.  Then, we watched the next part.  

Breaking the video up like this helped scholars TREMENDOUSLY by helping them to really break down their thinking so that their retelling could be accurate.
