Reflection: High Quality Task Using SWBT to Reveal Characters' Reasons for Their Actions in Fences, Act 2 Scene 1 - Section 3: Engagement (SWBT)


One of the things I am focusing on in the (Fences) unit is high expectations. Since my students require careful scaffolding, I am working on making a seamless transition from summarizing conflicts to characterization. Though we did not follow up today's lesson with a character study using STEAL, a lesson with this focus could easily be incorporated in this unit in the future based on the present structure.
