Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Memory Map Personal Narratives - Section 1: Warm Up


When I reflect on my teaching of this lesson, one thing comes to mind.  Too much time was taken up with me giving the example of my own Memory Map.  They didn't need to have such detail, and I know I got caught up in the story of my trip to AZ.  They hear me tell stories all the time, so I know it didn't phase them, but extra writing by the kids would have been more beneficial.  Bottom line- cutting myself off next year.

  Too much!
