Reflection: Intervention and Extension Close Reading Mason-Dixon Memory for a Deeper Theme - Section 2: Active Engagment


Many students in their thinking about theme concentrated on either Dondre or Cliftion. I am going to extend this lesson tomorrow and have them think of a theme for both characters and then compare and contrast the themes in their writing. The primary objective of the lesson was for students to think deeper about their theme, but tomorrow I want to extend their thinking for both plot lines.
