Reflection: Perseverance Zapped - Section 1: Introduction


The first time I introduce this activity, the explanation takes a while to discuss with students.  I find the time spent is valuable because when using this format with other texts, students are easily able to accomplish this task without elaboration – just a short reminder of some details.  This is perfect for sub-plans – it never feels like it is a lost instructional day.

This activity is successful with struggling learners because they can demonstrate specifically what they comprehend in the text.  Sometimes I will have partners read together and complete the assignment providing security in the knowledge and understanding through intimate discussions.
