Reflection: Connection to Prior Knowledge Mae Jemison: Using complex text with topic, main ideas & supporting details - Part II - Section 2: Cue Set


I had to go back and use this video to build background knowledge regarding space shuttles.  Scholars have been learning about space since third grade and I thought that scholars might have more background knowledge when we started this selection yesterday.  However, they did not.  Next year I plan to show these videos on day 1 of the selection, that way students can better access the text.
