Reflection: Backwards Planning RIP Magwich: Paying Homage in Chapter 56 - Section 2: Reading chapter 57


Today went well, but I have a better idea for the future. In the future I am going to provide similar worksheets for chapter 39-- when adult Pip meets Magwich-- and chapter 56. These worksheets focus the students on diction and what it does for a reader. Although my students understood how and why Pip changed his perspective, I think that they could speak about it more effectively if their first instinct was to use the text to advance their argument.
