Reflection: High Expectations Lucky Me, Lucky You - Section 2: Activity


In the beginning the students were given sentence prompts or sentence frames to begin their writing pieces. Here is the first time that I am simply giving the students a question to guide their thinking and they must come up with the sentence themselves. I do have the students go over the grammatical expectations so they are aware of what their writing piece needs, but the content is going to come purely from their own ideas now.

The students did struggle with the concept of luck. Many of the students attributed luck with wealth. I guess they are used to seeing good things happen to wealthy people and hard times for those who had no money.
