Reflection: Connection to Prior Knowledge Close Reading for Conflict - Section 1: Advanced Organizer

 

Working with vocabulary is always very unpredictable! You never know what prior knowledge and background the students are coming in with.  I was thinking that today's AO would not require too much time, but I quickly learned that they needed a lot of time to actually be able to use the words correctly in a sentence.  Even with the definitions, they had trouble formulating sentences that used the word in its correct form. 

I spent more time on this than I anticipated, but in the end I think it was beneficial to their understanding of the story.  

It goes to show how important vocabulary acquisition is for reading comprehension!
