Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Persepolis Seminar Preparations - Section 2: Seminar Preparation Instructions


I am a very fast talker and often speak faster than I am thinking, which causes my words to get muddled and my students to get confused. This is something that I am trying to work on this year, making sure that I either repeat, post or write important ideas or instructions so that students have multiple reminders of what I am asking them to do.

That said, having really spent some time planning how I wanted to divide the book and organize the seminar prep helped me to be very clear in my instructions. Students understood what they needed to do, how much time they had to accomplish their tasks and felt like they could be successful with the tasks at hand. This was evidenced by their final work (see next section for samples) and in their diligent use of time in class.

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.
