Text Dependent Analysis

Last week our class read a story about mimetic buildings.  After reading and discussing this story in class, students responded to a TDA prompt.  The students had to prove, with evidence from the reading, why mimetic structures have been so successful throughout history.

I was very pleased with the responses the students gave for this prompt.  Their writing was well organized and thoughtful.  They also did a great job reviewing for spelling and grammar errors before submitting the final copy. 

We will be working on another TDA response this week.  While I guided the class last week, students will be asked to work more independently this time.  I look forward to seeing their amazing work!
