Reflection: High Expectations Finding Figurative Language in F451 pages 1-70 (day 2 of 2) - Section 1: Review of Plot and Tie to Figural Language


I feel really good about having done this opener because it showed that I have been listening to the students, processing their exit slips and quizzes and still maintain high expectations.  I particularly checked in with two students through eye contact after we did the graph and added the quotations.  These two students wrote to me on their exit slips that they were lost, and what is unnerving is that these are two typically strong students.  However, in my moment of eye contact and connection, I could see that they were beginning to understand what is going on in the book and were ready to dial into some of the language concerns.  I could see that they were feeling better.
