Reflection: Checks for Understanding Perspectives of War - Section 4: Group Work - Pulling It All Together


These are the sticky notes students shared today. The Writing Strategy category includes what I posted on the wall: imagery, tone, theme, and figurative language. It also includes more complex devices like paradox and juxtaposition. Even the less complex devices are challenging for a good number of students. To properly identify these requires a certain level of control of language that many of my students lack. Thus, it is important to give them multiple opportunities to practice these, even if it is just to identify them.
