Reflection: Connection to Prior Knowledge You be the Judge: Point of View - Section 2: Read CLOSELY


Anytime I have the students read CLOSELY, I make sure to review and discuss the annotations they can use. I also remind them that when we have margins around an article they make a great place to write notes as we read. I try to point out an annotation that I might want them to really practice using. I choose one based on what I think will help them the most while reading or one that I have not seen many of the students using.
