Reflection: Relevance "Flowers For Algernon" Excerpt Part 2 - Section 2: Independent Practice


I have the students use the T-Chart here in order to get them to really weigh the two positions in their mind, rather than just making a snap decision about the topic, based only on how they think they would feel. This is about Charlie, so I want the students to become more objective in the analysis as they reach this conclusion.

I then want them to see that they have completed much of the work by determining the specific pieces of evidence that will support their position when they begin writing about this topic later on.
