Reflection: Connection to Prior Knowledge Brainstorming Fantasy for types and elements of fantasy fiction - Section 3: Independent Practice


Many students were still stuck when I told them they could draw a map of their setting. I had my own drawn, "Map of magical Aki Kurose (where I teach), but some students needed more examples. I pulled up Fantasy World Maps of Hogwarts, Braith and Narnia Map on the projector to give them more ideas.

If I were to teach this again, I would have the maps on a handout or slide show for them.
