Reflection: Flexibility Comparing Characters - Section 3: Character Discussion


When we finished the lesson I realized that I should have given time for students to turn their comparisons into a paragraph or two. It would have been a good lesson to model how to write a paragraph where details need to be given  and then compared. Alas, I didn't have time for that this time, but create a lesson doing just that with another book with this modeling and writing as it's focus.
