Reflection: Complex Tasks Speaking, Listening and Writing Compound Contrasting Sentences - Section 4: Closure


I really want to push my students to answer questions as coherently as possible.  As I think about how students are going to have to respond to text and what is going to be asked of them on the PARCC assessment, I know students are going to have to be as specific as possible.  I also think about the skills my students will need in order to be College and Career ready.  They must be able to articulate their thinking with specificity.  I feel this task enabled my students to start on the path in order to get them ready for what is to come in future years.  Take a look at my students work in the video here: Student Work Contrasting Goldilocks Stories.mp4.
