Reflection: Rigor Exploring Beringia - Section 3: Putting the Information together: Working Between the Texts


Well, the exit tickets from the second time around were much better!!  So many times students answer constructed response questions with what they WANT the answer to be not necessarily what the question is actually asking for. The same thing happened here.  The question asked the students to explain HOW the first Americans came to be here and they explained WHY.  

This happens a lot with students and I have yet to come to an answer as to why.  In many types of questions they make the same mistake.  Surely it is not difficulty in reading the words. Certainly is isn't a lack of understanding the difference between how and why.  Perhaps it is not having enough experience with how questions.  Teachers always ask them why but do we ask them how?  Now, that is a question to consider!!
