Reflection: Rigor Comparing Two Cinderella Stories - Section 4: Group Work


I think this section lacked rigor.  I was simply recalling facts and sorting them. Several of my student were entertained, but not challenged.  I think I should have had them turn this venn diagram in to a paragraph.  That would have added an extended writing activity and rigor for those that finished early. Check out my video of student work (Comparing Partner Student Work).
