Reflection: Complex Tasks Night of the Twisters: Analyzing Multiple Points of View - Section 1: Cue Set


I had scholars watch this two times today.  The first time, they answered the question: How would the guide describe the experience of crocodile "hunting?"  The second time, scholars searched for direct evidence (quotes from the movie) that supported their response.  This was helpful because it helped break down the task a bit for scholars.  They only had to focus on 1 skill for each view.  This enabled more meaningful and focused practice of citing and of considering multiple perspectives.
