Reflection: Checks for Understanding Close Read: Casey at the Bat - Integration of Knowledge and Ideas - Section 3: Introduction of Mighty Jackie: The Strike-Out Queen


I am always amazed each time we do a compare and contrast activity at some of the things the kids are able to pull from the story that I wasn't even thinking about.  One of the students commented, "Jackie believes in herself in a nice way, and Casey is prideful and cocky."  I love that the kids are able to pull what they discovered from the text and share and enlighten each other in meaningful discussions.  The analysis and discussion of texts is what brought about my love and passion for literature.  It is so fun to watch that happen now at an early age for students.
