Reflection: Rigor The Dress Code Debate - Section 5: Evaluation and Closure


The lesson proved to be quite rigorous with the use of the essential questions in The Dress Code Debate.  Most of my students wanted to be on the "against" a dress code side.  The primary challenge was for students to respond to the essential questions from the perspective they were assigned - for or against.  Another challenge was getting students to share the floor.  In order to get students who were less responsive to participate more, I used the Think-Pair-Share strategy and also encouraged them to use their research and reader response log on which they had made notes during the previous day's lesson.
