Reflection: Intrinsic Motivation Point of View...It's First! - Section 3: Closure


The Challenge Envelopes activity was warmly received.  The kids had a great time coming up with their question and rotating to other groups to answer new questions.  I was pleasantly surprised to hear how excited they were to see the questions each group had written.

This is an effective strategy because the students are speculating about what could have happened and using higher level thinking skills as they imagine the way the various events may have taken place.  It's a great way to end a lesson in which they've been immersed in point of view.  Although they're not asked to think from a specific point of view, their knowledge of the characters, and the way they think, influences how they answer the question.  It's a good way to close the lesson.
