Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Using the Author’s Clues to Make Predictions - Section 2: Introduction


As I move away from strict adherence to my anthology to teach, I am learning a lot about my students and about Common Core.  I find that I can be more creative and read more rich texts this way, and my students enjoy being read to and working collaboratively.

This is the first time I have taught this lesson, and I did do a lot of modeling.  It is my goal to get my students to an independent level of work; however, because they are in First grade they need to be taught explicitly how to ask the questions and do the work first.
