Reflection: Intervention and Extension Biographies: Note-Taking - Section 3: Let's Practice Note-Taking


For the most part I was very impressed with the notes the students took during the Picasso story.  There were a few however that needed a little extra help.  During small groups, I walked the kids who needed some help through the book step by step and we decided what would be important information to include in our note and what would be ok to leave out.
