Reflection: Checks for Understanding The Whipping Boy - Prediction - Section 3: Predicting the Solutions to Mysteries


As I was checking the predictions made by the students as we read our mystery as a class, I was amazed at this graphic organizer I included here so you could see.  This young man set up a section for the clues in the story, a section for inferences, a section for prediction, and a section for information.  I was extremely impressed.  The students are continually amazing me with the incredible things they come up with.  :)
