Reflection: Complex Tasks Greek Against Greek Continued - Section 3: Writing Our Claims


Providing students with a graphic organizer to help construct their writing was a great idea! The students had enough information from their readings to support their claims, they just needed assistance with organizing their thoughts.  By giving them the graphic organizer, most students were able to move thorough this process with ease.  

Some students still struggled, so I pulled them and was able to work with them on developing their claim and working through the graphic organizer.
