Reflection: Intervention and Extension Character Focus: A Beginning Look - Section 3: Getting to Know Characters


It is often hard to get students to focus on other characters in the book. To make sure that characters like the mothers or soldiers are covered, I ask specific students to take on this characters. This is to challenge my higher readers to use more of their comprehension and inferencing skills to learn about a character.
