Reflection: Pacing Levels of Thinking: An Introduction to Archetypes - Section 4: Wrap up and Next Steps


So, the students got way into this today and offered many of their verbal observations while we were going through the notes. Even though I didn't have an official exit activity, I feel confident that they absorbed what they needed to absorb.

We will have to finish the lecture notes tomorrow and I am going to delay the start of Paradise Lost to allow for more practice. It was fun to see the kids get into this so much today--I think it helps that these symbols are so easily recognizable and it allowed them to see that they already have a large body of background knowledge to work with.
