Reflection: What's the Message, Again? - Section 1: Do Now


It was a good idea to focus students on the problem and solution when determining the central message. It helped them see the connection to the story events. It also made it easier for them locate key details in the story to support their answers. I plan to create a poster listing the four questions to post for student reference.
