Reflection: Adjustments to Practice 1968: Examining the Documentary and Informational Text (1 of 3) - Section 3: Did she really just say let's watch a movie?


Wow!  Students loved this assignment today.  I have to accept that this generation is a visual one.  They are constantly reading video games, Facebook, Twitter, etc.  Today went better than I anticipated.  I chose to take notes on Apollo 13.  Students shocked me with how much they remembered from the film.  I have to give them more opportunities to demonstrate their ability to read and comprehend visual texts.
