Why's

I choose this topic because we are currently discussing character and because the students are giving oral presentations and need to practice expression.

Objective:

I chose this objective because the students need to see that characters, like people having many qualities and change.

I chose this objective because students need to express themselves in their writing as well as their reading.

I chose this objective because students need to be able to support their opinions with specific details from the story.

Materials:

I chose to use post-its because it encourages students to get involved with the text and it is fun.

The sheets and books are part of the reading program here.

This strategy is good for students...
