Reflection: Adjustments to Practice The Bet, Part 1: Sequence of events in a complex text - Section 2: Reading and Mapping the Story with a Sequencing Template


Of course, no matter how well planned you might be, adjustments need to be made on the fly.

My 3/4 class today needed at least 20 minutes to work on their sequence charts, and -- even after that time allotment -- many had incomplete charts.  Because the problems ranged from issues with charting flashbacks to missing key aspects of the chronology, I gave each student a post it note and told them to give another student feedback on the note.  So, they exchanged papers and provided some notes and guidance for each other.  This seemed to help, but I still had a lot of students who had to take the assignment home to finish it.
