Reflection: Adjustments to Practice The Amazing Race to Answer Text-Dependent Questions on"The Cask of Amontillado" (Day 2 of 2) - Section 1: Do Now


If I do this activity with my students in the future, I might consider limiting the number of questions. Most students did not finish the Amazing Race, so that tells me that I should consider reducing the questions to ensure that we are focusing on fewer discrete skills. Another option is to differentiate this activity and create different sets of questions based on student readiness.This way, I will be able to work with pairs more closely to ensure mastery.
