Reflection: Intervention and Extension Wake Me Up: Poetry through song - Section 3: Guided Practice


Although some scholars were ready to jump right in and analyze the figurative language in this song, many scholars were not.  Therefore, I did a quick check for understanding -- thumb up, thumb to the side or thumb down to see if they were confident to practice on their own.  I ended up with about 1/2 of the class who still needed support.  I modeled a bit more with them instead of having them go off and practice in partnerships.  

This did work well, when I collected their independent work, only 2 scholars in my first class and 4 ELL scholars in the second class missed the objective.
