Reflection: Flexibility Who is Esperanza and what shapes her identity in "The House on Mango Street"? - Section 5: Independent Reading


Here's where I needed to be flexible and realize that this wasn't the best use of time today. Students did not get to this part, and I decided that I needed to re-evaluate whether or not all students need to read the end of the book. My final decision--In order to be able to answer the essential question for Unit 1 "What shapes our Identity," they don't need to read every single page of the book. Check out Day 2 to see how I decided to end the unit.
