Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Picture the Poem: Creating a Poetry Tableau - Section 3: Building Knowledge


Some students were confused about how to incorporate information about the tableau in this essay. The didn't remember what happened in the tableau. To deal with this, I had video recorded the tableau, so I will show the video to students that need to see it in so that they can jot down ideas to include in their essays. Initially, I hadn't anticipated that this would be an issue, but videoing the tableau is a way to avoid any issues with this. It might also be helpful to analyze the video as a whole class prior to writing.
