Reflection: Checks for Understanding Plot Conflict: Character Vs Nature - Section 3: Character Vs Nature


As the lesson was moving along, I realized that many of my students had something to say about the book. I thought a discussion would take too long so we had a brief one and then I had them get out a piece of lined paper. I asked them to write how Ming Lo was up against nature. I reminded them to include evidence that supports their opinion. I will now use their writing as a grade and it will also help me assess their understanding.
