Reflection: Student Ownership Events that Change Characters - Section 4: Collaborative Activity


In this video clip my students are explaining their work.  What I noticed is that they had learned and were using new vocabulary words such as lonely and silly; however, the word scared was used several times.  This tells me I need to introduce synonyms to pump up their word usage. 

Also, the one student was doing most of the talking, while the other one (who is an ELL) did a lot of head nodding or one word replies to questions.  What I should have done was make sure both students answered the questions using complete sentences.
