Reflection: Quizzes Assessing Plot and Conflict - Section 3: Final Thoughts


After any assessment it is important to check for understanding. As teachers we know how to give tests to look at student learning, but we also need to reflect on our teaching practice. When I completed this assessment it was clear where students had trouble. One area was in the portion of details needed to show the rising action. Many students chose important details but did so from all sections of the story. I now know I need to go back and clarify with a mini lesson the difference between falling and rising action.
