Reflection: Modeling Analyzing Informative Text - Review Week Day 4 - Section 2: Lesson


You may notice that I've given students some type of handout to help them organize their thinking each day this week.  I refer to these loosely as graphic organizers; however, they are much more detailed than true graphic organizers and that's okay. I actually see them more as "thinking models".

My purpose is to help students organize their thinking and to be quite honest when I give my students a basic blank graphic organizer they often end up completely off track.  So, I like the handouts I've used this week and know from experienced that the detailed questions and sections help keep my students on the right track.
