Reflection: Student Grouping Rosa Parks & Main Ideas Continued - Section 3: Guided Practice


This was super effective.  Scholars did a really nice job in partnerships and this particular part of the text was VERY clear regarding main idea.  Be sure to circulate and challenge scholars to test their theory by going back to the text and asking themselves, "Do most of the topic sentences of each paragraph relate to the main idea that I selected for this section?" Students are invested at this point in the lesson because they have the opportunity to practice the focus skill with their friends.  They know that the more work they accomplish now, the less they will have to do during independent rotations and for homework.
