Reflection: Intervention and Extension Demonstrating an Understanding of Black Boy by Using a Reader's Log (Day 2 of 2) - Section 2: Building Knowledge


Asking those students who did not have a personal connection to the passage to instead predict what may happen next to Richard, is another option. I used this option to increase engagement with those reluctant students in this thinking activity.  Some students found it difficult to make personal connections and shut down when asked to do so. Making it less personal felt safer and therefore facilitated involvement in an activity that they otherwise might not have participated in.
