Reflection: Complex Tasks Learning the genre of Historical Fiction Story with "Names" - Section 1: Lesson Opener


The beginning of this story is a little hard to get into. The hook of having students think about and share where their name came from helped them stay focused on the story. Once they got to the part that talks about how Mrs. Cullinan could not have children, the students got really interested and ended up really liking the story.
