Reflection: Discourse and Questioning "Introduction to A Poem" - Section 1: My Lens


In this lesson the students used their sketches to help build literal interpretation of the text. To support students  in making inferring the author's intended message I used questioning and discourse in  their small groups.

Students were engaged and enjoyed talking about what the poem meant to them.
