Reflection: Checks for Understanding Analyzing Complex Characters and Tone Shift in Salvation - Section 3: Student Learning Activity


When I collected student work regarding the assuming of a character's role I realized that several students had difficulty taking on the voice of the character.  The  of the student's work that I attached to this lesson was an exception and aside form not writing more than 3-4 sentences,  I think she understood how to talk "through" the character.  In retrospect I think offering a few exemplars of what I was asking would have been helpful.
