Reflection: Lesson Planning Peek Inside.... And Predict! (Lesson 1 of 2) - Section 1: Materials


You may notice the the blank teacher's chart is different than the completed chart. I changed the chart headings as I thought more about this lesson. There are a lot of ideas on the internet about using a chart such as this with KWL or 'Think/Read/Know' or others. I thought originally that we would use the original headings of 'See/Read/Know' but as I planned out the lesson, I realized that the Common Core State Standards are asking students to verify what they predict or state with evidence from the text. Students will need to use what is in the text and illustrations as evidence.

Based on this, I switched the chart to say 'See/Know/Read' to support these standards. I am asking students to use illustrations and text that they see, combined with background information that they know to make a prediction. Then they read and use evidence from the book to monitor or verify their predictions.
