Thought starters

  1. How does Mr. McComb scaffold instruction to build students' understanding of the text?
  2. What role does modeling play in this lesson?
  3. How does Mr. McComb use the write-like, blank verse, and choral reading to make the text relevant to students?

Mr. McComb is one of those teachers to watch. He is young but clearly brilliant. He reminds me of an English teacher I had a long, long time ago. That teacher is in his 60's now, he is still teaching and he is the most requested English teacher in the district. Mr. McComb is already on track to becoming one of those teachers. Keep it up.

I like the way this lesson is chunked and scaffolded to reach the end goal.

Sean, I would be curious to hear about the kinds of activities and lessons you and your students have worked through to get to this point. They seem to have a clear sense of what "style" is coming into the lesson. How do they get there? In my own teaching, I tend to focus more on the content or meaning and less on the methods or techniques a writer uses to convey that meaning. I guess I'm looking for how to build up my own understanding of what might be called "practical rhetoric," so I can share that with students. How did you and your students arrive at this point? Thank you for sharing.
