Reflection: Discourse and Questioning I Will Survive - Section 5: Elaborate


The student work shows the product of a student who's favorite animal is a rhinoceros. So, I had to google what they need to survive. I read to him to information: the eat grass and drink water. They also use the water to keep cool. Then he came up with his sentence and wrote it in his journal. I think the key here to gettting participation in a really hard task is making it personal and based on the students interest. They all want to learn and write about their interests, right?
