Reflection: Advanced Students Timelines and Reading Logs - Section 4: Independent Reading with conferences


Here are two timelines created by an advanced student during independent reading time. This student was able to retell two entire books from memory and put main events on the time line she created. These time lines could be used as a planning step for writing a summaries of these books.

To challenge her in next steps, I would like to see her begin reading a new book she hasn't read before and make a time line of just one chapter.  I would like to see her think more deeply about a smaller portion of a book and make a time line related to what is happening in one scene as it relates to the theme the book for instance.
