Reflection: Grappling with Complexity Two Versions of A Fable - Same Summary - Section 4: Students Take a Turn


Ahhh... teachable moments. You never anticipate them, but they are powerful ways to individualize.

In this lesson, one girl was writing and I saw she was struggling with commas. She also wanted to start a sentence with the word 'but'.  We discussed the ideas and she got some real practice with her summary.

This book was also an EXCELLENT illustrations about point of view. I used this opportunity to turn the book and talk about how the author used the text and pictures to show this concept. Here's my discussion of point of view while we were reading the book.
