Reflection: Pacing The Influence of Character on Narrative...and Vis a Versa: Panel Analysis (Day 1 of 2) - Section 4: Discussion Groups


This was a last minute punting decision. I had intended to have the groups discuss the relationship between characterization and narrative using their graphic organizers as references. We did not have time to do this, so we did a gallery walk instead.

Groups finished at different times, so I had groups hang their own posters. We had about 10 minutes for the gallery walk. I encouraged students to walk around with people who had studied the other element of craft so they could ask each other questions. I also circulated the room to ask questions and push their thinking. We had to hold off on the discussion piece until the following school day.

The Influence of Character on Narrative...and Vis a Versa: Panel Analysis (Day 1 of 2)

Unit 2: Narrative Reading and Writing: Persepolis and Memoir
Lesson 2 of 11

Objective: SWBAT analyze characterization OR narrative techniques from Persepolis by creating a graphic organizer to be used in student led discussions.

Big Idea: Characterization and narrative often work hand in hand in a narrative text. Looking at how each works separately then discussing their relationship will allow students to comprehend text at a much deeper level.
