Reflection: Debate The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane Day 5 of 8: Chapters 15-17 - Section 6: Independent Practice: Day Five Work


Our daily pair & shares gave the students an opportunity to convey their ideas about the text.  I purposefully created questions with numerous answers to allow for some debate.  To keep all students engaged in the conversation, set clear expectations about what students should be doing while engaged in a conversation.  I revisit my expectations often, as I did throughout this set of lessons.  (See Resource File:  Engage in Discussion Poster CCSS SL3.1)
