Reflection: Rigor Zlateh's Goat Literary Analysis - Section 2: Independent Practice


The work we did today independently was designed to be a little more challenging for the students.  We have been working on conflict a lot over the last few weeks and it is time they started demonstrating independence with the concept.  

At first, I needed to guide a bit to get them started, but it wasn't too long before the majority of the students really picked up and took off.  

I did have to work with my struggling students quit a bit-and ended up pulling them off into small group to review the story and then go through each question one at a time.  Chunking for the struggling readers was the successful.
