Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Prefixes: un-, re- - Section 1: Do Now


What I would change about this lesson is teaching beyond the meaning of the prefix. For example, I taught students that since un- means not, unhappy means not happy. Re- means again, therefore restate means to state again. As result, students gave the pat definitions of words as unlock means to not lock. Undo means to not do. The latter definition does not necessarily match the meaning of the word. To take students beyond such simplistic definitions, I would present synonyms as definitions. For example, I would present sad as a definition of unhappy.
