Reflection: High Expectations Learning About Subheadings and Bold Words - Section 3: Independent Practice


If you expect your students to perform, many times they will rise to the occasion.  You may have to support and scaffold along the way to help students, as you can see from the video: Bold Words ELL and Strugglers.mp4.  Both the students in this video did a great job; however, I was impressed with my little struggler, who knew to go and look for evidence in the story.  Awesome!
