Reflection: Staircase of Complexity Ready, Set, Analyze! - Section 2: Instruction


This was exactly what the students needed! This power point and activity really solidified the concept for a lot of students.  I was able to see a lot of student finally understand the skill. 

The power point breaks indirect character traits down into a character actions, words, thoughts, relationships, etc.  By doing this, the students were able to analyze the text and understand what trait the author's were trying to get us to understand. 

Using the white boards is always an activity the students enjoy.  By increasing their engagement and enthusiasm, I was able to keep them attending.  It was also a fun little "game" for them to compete with their peers.
