Reflection: Discourse and Questioning Island of the Blue Dolphins: Character's Response to Challenges - Section 1: Cue Set


We watched the first time and focused on the first question: What is the challenge that the Iron Man faces.  The second time we focused on the second question: How does Iron Man respond to that challenge.  The last time we focused on the final question: What does this say about his character?  

This helped scholars to answer all questions successfully and gave them a strategy for answering complex questions (watching/reading multiple times).
