Reflection: Data Analysis Clues to theme? Analyzing images and ideas in Night, Chapters 1-3 - Section 4: Closure


Today I collected a note card from each student.  I was really focusing on the back of the card where students describe WHY the particular theme is applicable to the text evidence.  This is where students should really be analyzing the text and explaining the connection between the theme and the text evidence they have gathered.  On this revised card, the students explains WHY the text evidence is a great example of the loss of innocence theme. Each of these cards demonstrates a student's ability to respond with text evidence.  I am spending a lot of time making sure students are proficient in this skill.
