Reflection: Lesson Planning Similarities and Differences in Text About Animal Helpers - Section 2: Guided Practice


So, I originally thought I would incorporate text features into this lesson. Once, again I find I have tried to do too much and have confused my class. I needed to simply read each text, and then engage the class in a discussion about how the author's perspective is similar and different.

It's like I think I am being a better teacher by covering a lot, but really I need to do deeper into the one standard I am teaching. We need to find more similarities and differences between the two text, not combine two standards.
