Reflection: Student Ownership Phaethon - Section 2: Read "Phaethon"


Even with my Honors classes I chunked the reading.  I felt it was important that students evaluate the changes in the characters.  Through this discussion, students often related similar situations to their own life.  By listening to others observations and experiences, gradually, the class was discussing issues that would not have appeared with independent reading.  We were also able to discuss dynamic and static characters.
