Reflection: Checks for Understanding Details, Details, Details - Finding the Theme and Details in 3 Versions of a Story - Section 5: Apply What You've Learned


It's important to reflect with the students about their answers.  It helps me to hear how my students justify their answers and how they make their choices. The amount of prompting needed, the way they phrase their answers, and how much they need the text shows me what future instruction should focus on.

I am also continuing to determine how well students can differentiate theme from plot.  This student in the video still needed a lot of prompting and tended to give details when asked about the theme of the book. However, he definitely had a clear choice of favorite book and enjoyed telling why he chose that book to be his favorite.
