Reflection: Lesson Planning Close Reading: Judith Ortiz Cofer - Section 2: Close Reading Through Multiple Choice


I had hoped they would debate the answers a bit when they had different answers and come to a consensus, but they were content to agree to disagree and wait for the answers.  That tells me that I have to switch things up; I may simply tell them they need to focus more on this sort of deep analysis if they want to do well on the AP exam (this kind of bluntness often is enough to snap this group back!), or I may have to make the next one "count."  I really hate using grades as a motivating tool (in this case I'll let the College Board do that!), so I will try the lecture approach, or come up with something more clever so we can strengthen the super-close reading.
