Reflection: Checks for Understanding What Do They All Mean? - Section 2: Independent Practice


Students have had several opportunities throughout the week to practice identifying figurative language and interpreting the meaning. Students have also had opportunities to write some examples. Now, they have the opportunity to interpret meaning of figurative phrases in a piece of literature. Prepping students for this throughout the week, gives students an opportunity to apply these practices in a more difficult situation. I hope students will be able to think through the story and use what they have been practicing in this more challenging task.
