Reflection: ELL Students Comparing Cinderella: I Read- You Choose - Section 1: Do You Really Know Cinderella?


After I collected the final paragraphs, I noticed that many students still had blanks on their initial compare/ contrast chart.  Even though I helped them fill in their charts, I didn't explicitly write the words in the boxes for them to copy if necessary.  The reason I didn't do this was because A.)  I wanted them to analyze the text on their own and B.)  I wanted the words to be theirs. Looking back, what I should have done was make a master copy for those students who I knew would need to use it.  A great way to do this is to make a fill in the blank style chart for those kiddos who can't keep up and write while I'm talking.  Next time, I will make one of those for each story and "secretly" pass them out to my students who need that extra support.
