Reflection: Pre-Tests Comparative Analysis of Abs True and "Indian Education" - Section 4: Follow-Up Discussion


As much as this activity is a summation of the students' reading of the novel, it really is our first glance at a more complex standard (RL9-10.7), and lays the seeds for some of the work for an upcoming unit.  Thus, I examined student work with a view toward noting areas for growth and also pre-assessing their comfort with making text-to-text connections.
