Reflection: Homework More Skimming - Section 1: Hook


To give students an opportunity to practice strategies on their own, I usually open-ended questions for students to answer about the anchor text we are using in class. This gives students a chance to read and analyze an on-level text on their own. Because I don't grade homework for accuracy, but just for completion students are not frustrated by the activity. I am able to assess where they are through looking at their homework which helps me determine where to go with my lesson.
