I will review their graphic organizers and their summary and opinion. What will I do for the students that didnt? Repeat this lesson with the same graphic organizers with more guided practice. What will I do for the students that did? Repeat this lesson with the same graphic organizers with more independent practice. What went well? What would I change if/when I teach this again?
