Reflection: Complex Tasks Night of the Twisters: Prose Constructed Response and Multiple Perspectives - Section 4: Independent Practice


We did not do stations today.  Scholars didn't struggle as much as they had the first time I taught how to create a PCR for compare/contrast, but they did take more time to construct the PCR since it the task was so complex.  My ELL co-teacher and I decided on-the-spot that it was more important for scholars to focus on the PCR practice than to go into small groups today.  Therefore they could have more support with partners before they were expected to be independent with the skill. We will resume small groups on Monday.
