Reflection: Checks for Understanding This Stands for What? Explaining Symbolism in The Scarlet Ibis - Section 5: Building Knowledge: Study Skills


As I reviewed the foldables, I noticed that many students did not provide enough specific examples for the foldable to be useful. They did a good job with the definitions of the terms but were less proficient at using examples from stories that we have read so far or providing student-created examples. I am not yet sure whether this is because they did not finish the foldable in class (they should have finished for homework) or because I didn't give clear instructions. Perhaps providing a completed model of a foldable page might be helpful if I use this strategy in the future.
