Reflection: Student Ownership Comparing the Adventures of Two Characters - Section 3: Guided Practice


In this lesson I wanted my students to compare and contrast the charactor traits of each hen, instead of the hens themselves.  This was a new experience for them, and let's be honest, I was a little surprised by how fast they grasped the concept of looking at what made each chicken special instead of her physical characteristics.  I observed that my students were more engaged and most of them were able to list a minium of three comparisons or contrasts on their T-chart.
