Reflection: Performance Tasks Use a Story Map to Write a Narrative About the book Bud, Not Buddy - Section 4: Closure


This lesson was scaffolded in such a way that I used the interdependence of class collaboration to complete the story map graphic organizer and then gradually released students to independently write their own narratives.  The writing performance task gave students an opportunity to be creative while still keeping in line with a balanced literacy approach of CCSS - reading, writing, listening, and speaking.
