Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Focus On Biography: Text Features Help Answer Close Reading Questions (Day 3 of 5) - Section 3: Go to Work


I had to stop the student in mid work session and redirect their answers on the first question on the form. They wanted to write specifics; I wanted answers like when and where they were born and what did they did. It was GREAT that the students were locating specific and key information in the bullets, and had I not had the plan to use this page as a springboard to write interview questions, I would have been thrilled with level of specificity they were producing. I asked the students to write the question that the author asked and answered with each bullet point. It helped.
