Reflection: Joy Native American Petroglyphs - Close Read - Compare and Contrast - Section 3: Compare and Contrast


This is the first time I have taught this compare and contrast activity during our Native American unit.  The students have been enthralled with the content and I have been totally amazed at what they have been able to come up with.

I love the thinking that the students are expected to do with the common core.  No more spoon feeding answers to students so that the can regurgitate them back at us.  They are learning to think for themselves and it is an exciting process to be a part of!
