Reflection: Student Ownership Dealing with Ambiguity in Chapter 42 - Section 2: Reading Chapter 42


I wish I had some of our reading on video! The moment when students started to figure out all the connections between these characters was priceless. They all started talking at once, trying to prove that they were the first to understand who jilted Miss Havisham and the relationship between she and Arthur. Their enthusiasm made the discussion about the cause of Arthur's demise even better; many think that we was hallucinating, but there were a few holdouts that insist that Miss Havisham is or has a ghost.
