Reflection: Gradual Release Figurative Language with Casey at Bat - Section 3: Guided Practice


This part of the lesson actually morphed into the independent practice.  I pulled the entire yellow group and the scholars who felt "shady hazy" to work with me and go line-by-line, stanza-by-stanza to search for metaphors.  As scholars felt more comfortable, I sent them off to explore the poem on their own.  It ended up working out very well because my ELL co-teacher pulled the pink group (the high group) first.  So the entire lesson flowed very nicely!
