Reflection: Student Ownership Creating a Road Map of Rhetoric Day 1 - Section 2: Introduction and Modeling


My sense from the discussions students had at the end of class is that they are intrigued by the idea and excited to do a project (they enjoyed choosing a piece to read—that wrinkle of giving them choice generated some excitement!), and they are a bit confused regarding how to do it.  In reflecting on the assignment sheet, I decided that tonight I will create a second handout that gives a kind of checklist of specific items they should represent on their maps to give them a little more direction while still maintaining the challenge of visually representing how all the different elements go together.
