Reflection: Student Feedback Making Shadows with Foreshadowing While We Predict! - Section 5: Apply It!


I taught this lesson to focus on foreshadowing, but really wanted the students to practice questioning as well.  The students looked at illustrations for information and did really well with the concept of foreshadowing.

I don't feel the students really used the questioning strategies much, without major prompting.  I did encourage them as I walked around during the 'students' turn' part of the lesson, but I was hoping for more questioning as the students presented during the 'apply it' section.  When this student presented his project about the lady who swallowed a shell, the students were focused on guessing and predicting only.  Next time, I think I'll require them to ask 5 questions first with before they can guess.  That way, they'll get more practice with questioning.

  Student Feedback: More emphasis on questioning but they got the foreshadowing!
