Reflection: Connection to Prior Knowledge Plot: The Beginning - Section 1: Advanced Organizer


Going into the activity for the advanced organizer, I was thinking I would need to provide a modified plot chart or provide students with prompts to assist them with completing the activity.  I was very happy to discover that by using their partners, they were able to successfully complete the plot activity with very little assistance from me.  Even my identified struggling learners were able to fill in their gaps by using their stronger partner as a resource. 

The students enjoyed doing this activity.  It allowed them to work with their peers and feel success with their learning.
