Reflection: Checks for Understanding Analyzing Two More Views of Storytelling, Day 2 of 2 - Section 4: Reading Another Poem


It is important that the notes students have at the end of the period are as accurate as possible. Notes should also provide a complete picture of the three perspectives. They are going to be working with these tomorrow so if their notes are limited, they will be less likely to be successful in the assignment for tomorrow. This is the reason why I gave students an opportunity to formulate points on their own first, then collaborate with classmates and also get support from me. The task of trying to delineate the perspectives of storytelling expressed in three different texts is abstract and I know that with abstract tasks comes the need for multiple sources of support. If student notes look like the ones I included in this section, that should be a very good start.
