Reflection: Staircase of Complexity The Titanic - Section 2: Reading the Passage


We all know that students need to continuously practice non-fiction reading.  This passage seems to catch the attention of most students because of the numerous movies and novels available in the real world.  This is one passage that students tend to incorporate most of the Reading Comprehension Strategies easily. By asking students to focus on questioning, I'm encouraging critical thinking as promoted with Common Core Standards.  The discussion as a whole class afterward, provides an opportunity for students to become involved in a discussion of wonderment and hear why students are asking particular questions and gently push struggling readers to the next level of comprehension.
