Reflection: Advanced Students "Bound" for Philly! - Section 2: Extention


The six students in this strategy group worked in pairs for this extension project.  They had a lot of fun rereading the transcripts on paper.  Giving them the printout of the transcripts allowed them to mark up the text.  Having a second look at the text allowed them to deepen their understanding of it.

They did not have time to complete the Venn Diagram to note the similarities and differences between the picture book and the vitural tour of the amazing escape of Henry Box Brown.  This year, I am going to make sure that I support the students who are ready for this level of a reading challenge to complete all aspects of the lesson.  I think the Venn diagram aspect of the lesson will push their thinking to compare and contrast the two sources.  This is an important component of the CCSS in Craft and Structure at the 5th grade level: RI 5.4, 5.5 and 5.6.
