Reflection: Data Analysis Elements of Fiction Pretest - Section 1: Starting a New Unit: Pretest


So.... the pretests have been given, graded and analyzed and the verdict is in- my kiddos know character and setting.  They did a decent job at problem and solution.  They don't know theme which wasn't surprising and they don't know about plot events.  I know where to start which was exactly where I thought we'd start.  At this point I can begin to plan my unit because I know where to begin- plot events.  

The next step will be to find a Patricia Polacco book that really speaks to plot events and go from there.  Before that happens, though, I need to build some background knowledge with my kiddos with an introduction to plot events and an introduction to Patricia Polacco.
