Reflection: Checks for Understanding Persepolis Seminar Preparations - Section 3: Independent Work Time on Seminar Prep


All but a few of my more apathetic students used the entire time to work on this sheet. They had their books open, asked great questions about the various plot points (i.e. "I think this panel could be the climax, but this panel could also work. What do you think?), and showed me that the close reading was a good call. I think having them look at the book as a whole first would have overwhelmed them, but having them look at one section as a microcosm of Satrapi's style and purpose helped them to see the larger style and purpose of the text as a whole. I have high hopes for the seminar tomorrow.

Persepolis Seminar Preparations

Unit 2: Narrative Reading and Writing: Persepolis and Memoir
Lesson 5 of 11

Objective: SWBAT gather textual evidence to support their analysis of Satrapi's purpose and process in writing Persepolis by completing the seminar preparation guide provided.

Big Idea: To assess students' ability to comprehend the text as a whole, asking them to write and then speak about their analysis is a great way to gauge understanding.
