Reflection: Advanced Students Mama Elephant and her Offspring - Section 6: Evaluate


The student work was done by one of my advanced students, and I try to teach to the top of my class when I am doing whole group lessons. But, I do provide modifications for some of my other students. I often shorten the amount of writing. Another thing I like to do is draw a line for each word they are writing. Sometimes I write information on the board, so they can copy it. Other times I write on their t-chart with a highlighter and the student traces the information. Sometimes I will even use a sticky note for students to copy from. It is important to support students and help them while they are engaging in new or complex tasks to avoid frustration for them.
