Reflection: Coherence Horton Hears a Who, What, Where - Section 1: Hook


When I planned out this lesson, I thought how fun it would be to teach who, what , and where with Horton Hears a Who.  But as the lesson progressed, I realized that was a foolish thought, because the children kept confusing the question of who? with the characters of The Who's.  It became a bit Dr. Seussish and tongue twisty trying to keep the two ideas separate, but linked together.  On the plus side of this confusion, it caused me to really work toward making sure there was clarity as I taught.

  Who? The Who's!
  Coherence: Who? The Who's!
