Reflection: Rigor Using SWBT to Reveal Characters' Reasons for Their Actions in Fences, Act 2 Scene 1 - Section 4: Shared Reading and Writing


After today's lesson, I have three days to finish the reading of (Fences) and the performance assessment . In addition, Cycle 3 ends in four days and we are going on spring vacation for a week and a half.

I am beginning to see and feel the malaise creeping up in my students. Though they are eager to read, they are not as willing. In the future, I want to arrange my unit plans so that I am not finishing a full-length work at the ending of a cycle or term.
