Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Just a Little More Fun with Fossils! - Section 3: Research, Vocabulary & Comparison


I don't like the reading that I have chosen for this lesson. The vocabulary is great, but I saw my students get very bogged down in searching it out. Could it be because their skim and scan skills are weak? Perhaps. While I wanted some high level vocabulary integrated in and I felt that they had been exposed to a lot of background knowledge before I inserted it in, I still think I could do a better job at finding something more reader friendly. I neglected to differentiate when the opportunity was knocking!
