Reflection: Student Led Inquiry Images Have A Voice (Lesson 3 of 4) - Section 5: Students Take a Turn


Although this was a difficult text and I read it aloud, the students still made some nice connections.  When we read a text and I see the class predicting and connecting (strategies we have covered since the beginning of the year), this is a great example of formative assessment. I want to encourage this 'thinking out loud' as we read more books. I didn't prompt the comments in this lesson about a connection or in another about predicting, they just happened. This kind of student led discussion is extremely valuable because it creates teachable moments and evidences that ome students are generalizing their reading strategies to new text.
