Reflection: Students with Disabilities Resolution of A Raisin in the Sun: Analysis of Characters and Theme - Section 3: Student Learning Activity


Cloze activities are traditionally used for improving reading comprehension.  I found that my students felt challenged but comfortablecompleting the activity versus them being to asked to write the paragraph with no model.  The activity gave them increased clarity on how they can construct their own paragraph as well as give me information concerning their understanding of the plays resolution. 

I suggest you try using a Cloze activity with passive learners as well as those with a learning disability.
